When news got out, several artists and politicians spoke highly of the Purple Rain artist's legacy, for both his work in music and his humanitarian efforts.

On CNN, political commentator and friend Van Jones spoke about the 57-year-old's life that only his inner circle knew about.

It turns out the legendary musician funded several charities including Yes We Code and Green For All that respectively gave underprivileged youth technical jobs in Silicon Valley, and provided homes with solar panels.

Last year, Prince famously performed in locations such as Chicago, New Orleans, and Baltimore. According to Jones, he did these concerts in order to help local organizations deal with police brutality and social injustice.

As a Jehovah's Witness, the Minnesota-native did not allow himself to speak publicly about his good deeds. However, his actions spoke so much louder than words, and touched so many lives.

He will definitely be missed.
