See Aretha Franklin Sing Prince's 'Purple Rain' at The White House

According to Hello Beautiful, Aretha Franklin paid homage to Prince, who passed April 21st at age 57.  President Barack Obama gave a speech prior to the concert, hailing Prince as a “creative icon.”  Mariah Carey, Usher and Lady Gaga also paid tribute to the fallen star, but Aretha’s vocals made our jaws drop.  Against the backdrop of an illuminated White House, Franklin sang her rendition of “Purple Rain,” to the crowd.  Watch below.
