D'Angelo and Maya Rudolph Perform Moving Prince Tribute on The Tonight Show

Wow.

Well done, D'Angelo and Maya Rudolph.

On The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night, the singer and the actress turned serious when they took to the stage and paid tribute to one of the most legendary singers of all-time.

We speak, of course, about Prince, who died of unknown causes on April 21.

With the stage shrouded in purple lighting, D'Angelo sat at the keyboard (while donning a white fur gilet and black fedora) and Rudoloph was joined by Prince cover band mate Gretchen Lieberum to provide back up harmonies on a rendition of "Sometimes It Snows in April."

At one point in the performance, D'Angelo changed the lyrics to the following:

"I often dream of heaven and I know that Prince's there."

Questlove - who heads up Fallon's house band - also honored the "Purple Rain" crooner by wearing a purple bowtie with the musical legend's name emblazoned on it.

It was great stuff all around.
