The Prince tributes can stop now. Jennifer Hudson just gave the rendition of “Purple Rain” that Prince needed to finally be released to his purple heaven.
People. Stop covering "Purple Rain." You will never do better than Jennifer Hudson. #betawards— mikeschaffer (@mikeschaffer) June 27, 2016
Purple rain can now be sung in churches across America …hymn like— kindredthefamilysoul (@Kindredthefam) June 27, 2016
Purple Rain has touched the hem of Jennifer Hudson's garment, so it's basically a gospel song now.— IG: @DerrickJaxn (@DerrickJaxn) June 27, 2016
