I see purple everywhere. The cast of The Color Purple, led by vocal powerhouse Jennifer Hudson, will make you feel like you’re being taken to church, as they cover “Purple Rain”. Can someone PLEASE give me a hallelujah.

Before the performance Jennifer Hudson shared a story about Prince. She says he invited Ms. Hudson to an event and encouraged her to bring the talented cast. She said they were honored to be in his presence, especially since it was the last time.

So ladies and gents allow me to bless you with this powerful performance of Prince’s “Purple Rain”. Sing along, and just like Jennifer Hudson says,

“Don’t be shy. And that means you too. As Prince would say, I know you know this song”
