Prince passed away at his home yesterday and last night the casts of two of Broadway’s biggest musicals paid tribute to him. At the end of their show the cast of The Color Purple, led by star Jennifer Hudson, did an emotional rendition of “Purple Rain” and the cast of Hamilton ended their show by dancing to “Let’s Go Crazy.” Watch fan shot videos of both below.

Many people, including those close to me, were psychologically devastated by Prince’s death. Others couldn’t have been more confused by this mourning for a man that many people had never even met. Prince was certainly prolific. He won not only seven Grammy awards, but an Oscar for his film Purple Rain and a Golden Globe for his “Song of Heart” in Broadway play reviews. Not bad for a self-taught guitarist. Through his music, we were able to express what seemed impossible to say. Through his creativity, we were able to imagine and dream the incredible, to create a new reality. Through his hard work and determination, we were able to believe in the ability to overcome those obstacle set before us.
