Yesterday, the world lost Prince, a singular personality that's left a gaping hole in music. Tributes to the late artist quickly came pouring out on social media, as well as on Broadway. The cast of The Color Purple delivered a sweeping and chromatically-appropriate rendition of "Purple Rain."
One commenter very accurately nailed how life-affirming this cover was, by saying, "I feel like I just attended church."
Hopefully it remains a permanent part of their show.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator and star of Hamilton, also gave Prince a sweet shout-out during their performance.
But perhaps the most moving tribute of them all was from Prince's biggest fan, Cheerios.
So thoughtful—no wonder there's a healthy breakfeast chockfull of whole grain oats in every bite! Cheerios has since wisely deleted the Tweet.
