Donna Grantis has paid tribute to "the greatest musician of all time" Prince.

The musician - who formed part of the late singer's backing band 3RDEYEGIRL - has taken to social media to share her own message in memory of the 'U Got That Look' hitmaker, who died on Thursday (21.04.16).

She wrote: "I am so thankful for all of the experiences I have shared in over the past three and a half years. It has been profoundly life-changing, transformative and beyond my wildest dreams. I feel so lucky to have lived through all of it with the closest of friends.

"At the centre of it all, was Prince: the greatest musician of all time, the most phenomenal guitar player on the planet, my mentor, bandmate and friend. He taught us about music, artistry, life, love, greatness, conviction, community and spirituality. He brought out the best in all of us."

And Donna - who performed in the group alongside Hannah Welton and Ida Kristine Nielsen - went on to remember the "creative genius, innovator and inspiration" the world has lost.

She added: "Together, not only as a band, but as a family, we lived life to the fullest, travelled the world together, made amazing music and had the best of times talking, laughing, dancing, and working towards a common goal. I will always cherish every moment, both onstage and off.

"Thank you to everyone who reached out with words of love and support. We will forever celebrate Prince's life and legacy. A creative genius, innovator and inspiration, the positive impact he has had on the lives of millions - both on a personal level and through song - is astounding. What a gift he has left us. The power of music unites us all."
