Lady Gaga took to Instagram on Sunday to share a heartfelt tribute to legendary musician Prince, who died on Thursday at the age of 57.
The "Til It Happens to You" singer captioned an on-stage photo of Prince with an emotional memorial.
"I tend to believe that when we die our souls hover for at least a moment if not longer before they either rest or are recycled into the consciousness of an already living being or maybe a newborn baby. Isn't it amazing Prince shared his soul with us so deeply before his death, and now after we will be replenished endlessly by both his legacy and all that he still has to give from the beyond. Thank you for sharing your life with us Prince. Giving up your anonymity because you felt compelled to share your gift. We learned so much. You just found God early, he needed you upstairs to innovate in heaven."

Like so many others who have honored the Purple Rain star since his death at his Paisley Park complex in in Minnesota, Gaga, 30, expressed a belief in the timelessness and eternal quality of Prince's life and legacy.
Police are still investigating Prince's untimely death. An autopsy was conducted on Friday, but the results have yet to be released to the public.
