On Sunday night, during the BET Awards, Jennifer Hudson paid tribute to famed singer Prince by singing his song Purple Rain, and she really rocked the venue!

No one could do any better. Tears of gratitude, soul beauty”.

Earlier in the evening, Stevie Wonder, Tori Kelly, The Roots and more also celebrated the bygone singer who died two months ago.

Rest In Peace Prince…
