Watch this amazing rendition of Purple Rain in this Prince tribute by The Color Purple Cast with Jennifer Hudson and Cynthia Erivo.
Yesterday we lost one of the legends as Prince passed away at his Paisley Park home in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The legacy that he leaves was immediately clear as fans, friends, the media and seemingly everyone paid to tribute or expressed their sadness at the ultimately death of a legend. You can see our Best Prince Songs of All Time feature.
Last night, the cast of white hot Broadway musical The Color Purple paid tribute to the Purple One. As the critically acclaimed show closed for its curtain call, with the cast on stage, the Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy winning Jennifer Hudson took the audience to church with cast member Cynthia Erivo (who is absolutely phenomenal in her own right). Hudson shared a story about how Prince had invited her and the cast of The Color Purple to a special event. They then went in to an absolutely breathtaking version of the iconic Prince song Purple Rain.
As you can imagine with Hudson, Erivo and this cast, this wasn’t just a tribute, it was THE tribute to Prince.
