She plans to introduce a bill to make purple the official state color.

Minnesota currently does not have an official state color.

"I don’t think the world will ever be lit up again with a single color in memory of an artist or person," Housley told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "He was special, and he was ours. We should be proud."

Minnesota turned many landmarks purple the day Prince died.

The Minnesota Twins made its Twitter purple and lit up the stadium with purple lighting. The state's Department of Transportation lit the I-35W bridge purple for the weekend.

Also, a memorial outside of Prince's home was filled with purple balloons and flowers.
