Prince performs during the "Pepsi Halftime Show" at Super Bowl XLI between the Indianapolis Colts and the Chicago Bears on Feb. 4, 2007 at Dolphin Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.

Broadway paid tribute to Prince, who tragically died on Thursday at the age of 57.

Jennifer Hudson, the lead in the current production of The Color Purple, ended the show by sharing a personal Prince story and then sang a powerful, heart-wrenching performance of "Purple Rain" with backing from the cast.
