The world lost one of the most iconic, ground-breaking artists in Prince on Thursday. The news of the 57-year-old's passing sent shockwaves throughout social media, as many publicly mourned the death of the talented superstar.

Prince, who's music spanned across nearly four decades, will be remembered as a legendary musician who broke barriers and was never afraid to push the envelope. One of the greatest examples of that occurred during his Super Bowl XLI halftime performance in 2007.

It was a performance unlike any other Super Bowl halftime show, as he grabbed the attention of more than 93 million TV viewers, and captivated his audience for the entire 12-minute set. To make things more poetic, Prince ended the show with an overwhelming rendition of his biggest hit, 'Purple Rain,' during a torrential downpour.
