Watch Stevie Wonder Sing A Touching Cover Of Prince's "Purple Rain" Live In LA

Watch Stevie Wonder Sing A Touching Cover Of Prince's "Purple Rain" Live In LA

Just so we're clear: the Prince tributes are far from over. Stevie Wonder, a legend in his own right that's been perhaps the most vocal star in the wake of P's untimely passing more than two weeks ago, has already laid out his feelings on just how earth-shaking Prince's talents are in a personal statement fit for such a seismic musical force. Then on Friday evening, Wonder stepped up the tributary sentiments, joining a grip of performers onstage in front of Los Angeles' City Hall building for live rendition of His Royal Badass' iconic ballad "Purple Rain" with Wonder stepping out front to lead the procession.

Watch as Stevie Wonder sends one up for The Purple One in the clip below and if you've yet to read his touching personal essay, we implore you to jump back into your feelings and take note of the affectionate salute. As the world continues to come to terms with the loss of an bonafide idol, this should at least bring you some resolve, knowing that one of the only living artists of that caliber keeps Prince's memory sacred.
