BET Awards 2016 Prince Tributes

The 2016 BET Awards gave Prince a lot of love last night with tributes throughout the show. Stevie Wonder sang “Take Me With U” with Tori Kelly before Jennifer Hudson’s church performance of “Purple Reign” had many people in tears. Maxwell shared his new single “Lake By The Ocean” before performing Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Erykah Badu, The Roots and Bilal gave life to “The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker” and “The Beautiful Ones.” Janelle Monae had  fun performing  “Delirious,” “Kiss,” “Pop Life” and “I Would Die 4 U.” Sheila E’s tribute ended the night with a medley of Prince songs including “Housequake,” “Erotic City,” “Let’s Work,” “U Got U The Look,” “A Love Bizarre,” “The Glamourous Life,” “America” and “Baby I’m A Star.” Prince’s first wife Mayte danced during the Sheila E’s tribute. Oddly enough D’Angelo and Chaka Khan were not present but were definitely missed. BET did a great job honoring Prince’s legacy.
