Tori Kelly, Stevie Wonder & Jennifer Hudson Honor Prince For Second Tribute Of The 2016 BET Awards

Stevie Wonder and Tori Kelly took the stage at the 2016 BET Awards for the second Prince tribute of the night with a performance of one of Prince’s classics, “Take Me With U”  from Purple Rain, his Oscar-winning film.

In front of photos of the late musician and purple lighting, Wonder and Kelly sang the duet originally performed by Prince and Apollonia.

Surprisingly (and probably a last minute addition),  Jennifer Hudson appeared for a powerful rendition of “Purple Rain”  …and, what can you say? JHud killed it as usual. Dressed in a hooded, all-white ensemble (inspired by a fashion forward outfit worn by Prince, below) Jennifer belted the iconic ballad like only she can.
