Fans in Prince’s hometown of Minneapolis, Minn. took their dedication to the next level for the holiday season.

The Staudt family told the Minneapolis Star Tribune were hit hard by the legendary musician's passing, so they decided to include the late superstar in their annual Christmas display as a tribute.

The “Purple Rain” intermission, which lasts about two minutes, includes thousands of purple Christmas lights, a spinning Prince symbol and pictures of the singer that illuminate the house between each show.

"Prince's passing meant so much to our community that we decided to do a short dedication during the intermission of our Christmas light show to honor him,” said Mike Staudt. "We've received compliments on this part of our show and a few people have even mention it made them teary-eyed."
