Stevie Wonder and Tori Kelly Perform ‘Take Me With U’ Tribute to Prince; Jennifer Hudson Slays ‘Purple Rain’

The 2016 BET Awards’ tribute to Prince continued as Stevie Wonder and Tori Kelly performed their rendition of his famous duet “Take Me With U.”

With sparkly purple bellbottom pants, Kelly joined the legendary Wonder, who donned a purple jacket, to perform the track from 1984’s Purple Rain. Celebration of the extremely popular album continued as Kelly stayed onstage to sing backup for Jennifer Hudson‘s rendition of the titular song, “Purple Rain.”

In Prince’s famous white hood, Hudson belted the classic ballad; taking the audience (and viewers at home) to church and back as they waved their hands side-to-side to the song. The Roots’ guitarist, Captain Kirk Douglas, took the honor of playing the legendary guitar solo on the purple-lit stage.

It was a tribute for the books. Prince’s image was also shown in the background of the stage as Hudson walked off singing with the sounds of cheers behind her.

Check out some snippets of the show below as well as what tweeters are saying about the performance.
