Prince’s private plane made an emergency landing Friday to rush the singer to the hospital, reports PEOPLE. He has been battling the flu for several weeks and was rushed to a hospital in Moline, Illinois, where he was treated. He is now resting at home.
The multi Grammy winning musician, who kicked off his “Piano and Microphone” tour earlier this year, postponed two shows last week in Atlanta due to his illness. He performed at the Fox Theater in Atlanta Thursday night after rescheduling. Singers Judith Hill and Janelle Monáe were in attendance.
Prince. In Atlanta. At the FOX Theatre. With just a piano. Greatest ever. RE inspired all over again.— Janelle Monáe, Cindi (@JanelleMonae) April 15, 2016
An elated Prince also took to Twitter to remark on the night’s performance, tweeting,
