This is so touching.
As fans flocked to Prince‘s recording studio outside Minneapolis to mourn the singer’s untimely death, a rainbow (above) appeared out of nowhere, one of many different tributes in various forms to the late icon.
It wasn’t just Paisley Park where the tributes were felt, either — Prince’s reach was worldwide, and as such, everything from buildings and bridges in his hometown to iconic structures around the world are showing their love for the legend.
Below, check out just a few of the makeshift memorials popping up all over, including at the New Orleans Superdome:

And many, many more (below):
And coincidentally, one more unfortunately worked out in a way, though it was unintended (below):

We would take back all the amazing and touching tributes, however, for Prince to be alive and still recording music.
It’s still such a shock. RIP.
