Today is Friday, April 22, 2016, and we're coming off a rough one. Yesterday, the world lost an incredible artist. There's no doubt Prince’s purple reign is over too soon. But there's been plenty of celebration of his life and his music. What was your favorite Prince song? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @detroitnews

Another thing that's over too soon? The Red Wings playoff run: The Lightning finished them off in Game 5. And to make it worse, this might be the last time fans will see Pavel Datsyuk in a Wings uniform.

Oh and the Tigers lost, too.

So let's pull ourselves up and get ready to take on a new day. Here's what's making news right now:
