Friday Faves – Prince Performs “Purple Rain” During Downpour at the Super Bowl

A Friday Fave (posted on a Saturday)!

Prince died last week, and if you’re like me, you’ve been listening to his tunes with a heavy and yet a full heart.  He was SO magical.  One of my favorite Prince performances is his Super Bowl half-time show.  It was February 4, 2007 in Miami and it was DUMPING rain!  Prince, being the quintessential performer that he was, wasn’t deterred by the weather at all.  In fact, as the narrator of this video tells us, Prince used it to his advantage and made his performance even more magical.  He was stormed upon and still brought what he brought, which was so special.  When they told him that morning that it was raining, Prince replied, “Yes, it’s raining.”  When asked if he was okay, he asked, “Can you make it rain harder?”  What a lesson for all of us in taking what you have and storming with it.

If you have 8 minutes, this is well worth the watch.  And I’d love to have his outfit here; it’s my color!

RIP Prince.  We shall miss you but Darlin’ your music will live forever!
