Mother Nature appeared to pay tribute to Prince today, stretching a rainbow across the Paisley Park compound where his body was found.

Forming a perfect arc, the rainbow apparently led fans to start shouting Prince’s name when it became visible.

It only lasted for a few minutes and was backed by thick cloud - the only thing missing was some purple rain.

Located near his native Minneapolis, Paisley Park served as Prince’s estate and recording studio for many years and yielded dozens of albums.

Tributes continue to flood in for the musician today, along with a few choice factoids from his career.

In 1984 for instance, he wrote a song so sexy that parents established a committee to try and block what it deemed such ‘inappropriate’ music.
