A small group of family, friends and musicians held a private memorial for Prince Saturday afternoon at Paisley Park in Chanhassen, Minn.

The 57-year-old was found dead at his home and recording studio on Thursday morning. His body was released to his family Friday afternoon and his remains were cremated, according to a statement from the singer's publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure.

"We ask for your blessings and prayers of comfort for his family and close friends at this time," Noel-Schure said.

There will be a public musical celebration of Prince's life on a later date. The details of that event have not yet been released.
