Prince’s Remains Cremated Followed By “Private Beautiful Ceremony”

Prince‘s remains were cremated on Saturday followed by a “private, beautiful ceremony” at his Paisley Park compound, according to his publicist Yvette Noel-Schure.

A few hours ago, Prince was celebrated by a small group of his most beloved: family, friends and his musicians, in a private, beautiful ceremony to say a loving goodbye.

Prince’s remains have been cremated and their final storage will remain private. We ask for your blessings and prayers of comfort for his family and close friends at this time

The cause of death remains unknown and it will be at least four weeks before we receive the results of the autopsy. An announcement will be made at a future date for a musical celebration.

Prince Rogers Nelson, 57, died Thursday at Paisley Park of unknown causes. The autopsy conducted Friday at the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office in Ramsey, Minnesota was inconclusive. Spokeswoman Martha Weaver said it could be weeks before the results are completed.

As the world continues to digest the loss of another music icon, sales of Prince’s music has skyrocketed with over 2.3 million songs sold in the three days following his death. As expected, the top songs sold were “Purple Rain,” “When Doves Cry,” “Little Red Corvette,” and “Let’s Go Crazy.”
