Watch Jennifer Hudson Sing ‘Purple Rain’ & ‘Hamilton’ Cast ‘Go Crazy’ In Broadway Tributes

The two leading Broadway shows paid tribute to Prince, who died on Thursday at the age of 57. Jennifer Hudson, the lead in the current production of The Color Purple, ended the show by sharing a personal Prince story and then sang a powerful, heart-wrenching performance of “Purple Rain” with backing from the cast, putting the church back into the venue. The cast of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit musical Hamilton finished the performance with a rousing rendition of “Let’s Go Crazy.”
