'The Color Purple' Tribute to Prince Will Make Your Knees Buckle
I was awoken this morning by my wife’s phone, which was playing this video of The Color Purple’s tribute to Prince. It was a weird way to wake up, because it was both a sad reminder that yesterday was not a fever dream and that Prince is actually gone, but also, good lord, it was an incredible, hair-raising rendition of “Purple Rain” led by Jennifer Hudson, whose voice fills the entire auditorium in a beautiful shade of purple.
You might want to sit down for it, because your knees may buckle on you.
With this and the joyous Hamilton tribute, there was a lot of love for Prince on Broadway last night.
