The internet is buzzing with celebrated musician D’Angelo’s tribute to Prince on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show. D’Angelo performed Prince’s hit ‘Sometimes it Snows in April,’ along with actress/singer/comedienne Maya Rudolph’s cover band Princess. Rudolph, the daughter of legendary singer Minnie Ripperton, is one half of the band while Gretchen Lieberum is the other half.
Watch as the group pays homage to one of the greatest musicians of all time. D’Angelo, who has been referred to as heir to Prince’s throne, gets choked up at the end. True Prince fans will get choked up too as the world continues to mourn the loss of his purple badness.
