We’re not trying to make you spend the rest of your day crying, reminiscing about Prince but we have to share this video of the cast of The Color Purple musical tributing the Purple One. Turns out, Jennifer Hudson was a personal friend to Prince. And interestingly enough, Prince had invited the entire cast to one of his legendary parties. To honor him they  sang “Purple Rain” at the closing of last night’s show along with Cynthia Erivo, who plays Miss Celie in the production.

It is incredibly soulful and touching.

Have your tissue ready.
