Jennifer Hudson Sings Incredible 'Purple Rain' Tribute for Prince with Cynthia Erivo (Video)

Jennifer Hudson sings her heart out while performing Prince‘s song “Purple Rain” during a tribute to the late singer on Thursday (April 21) in New York City.

The Oscar-winning actress and her co-star Cynthia Erivo led the cast of The Color Purple in the tribute following the performance of their Broadway show.

“Not too long ago, [Prince] called me while we were here and asked me to come out to this event because he was writing his book and he told me you can bring your cast members along,” Jennifer said. “We were honored to be in his presence one last time and we got to have that moment.”

“He said his music will live on and he will live through his music so we want to keep him alive today with this song,” Jennifer added.
