The first of two all-star Grammy salutes to the late Purple One led by the legendary percussionist.

Announced just a few days ago, the performance featured a medley of three Prince classics,”Little Red Corvette,” “When Doves Cry,” and “Kiss,” with the “My Way” singer reviving a pristine falsetto, while twigs shifted from angelic pole dancer to front-and-center spirit. Serving as music director for their set, Sheila could be seen in the wings supporting the duo on percussion and singing back-up vocals throughout.
