D’Angelo’s Prince Tribute Was Perfect
It’s fitting D’Angelo was the man behind the piano Tuesday night paying homage to Prince on The Tonight Show. After all, the two elusive musicians lead supremely private lives, but seem to pour so much of themselves into their introspective music.
While Prince’s fans are still struggling to come to terms with his sudden death, D’Angelo’s cover of “Sometimes It Snows In April” was just the balm many needed to soothe their broken hearts.
Actresses Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum, who sing in a cover band aptly named Princess, joined D’Angelo on stage for the moving tribute.
