Artists across the globe took a break from their set lists to carve out a significant amount of time to commemorate the aura of Prince through music.
From Broadway to Paris, artists commemorated the fallen musician with his revered melodies or their own hit tracks. One artist was Rihanna, who dedicated an emotional rendition of “Diamonds” to Prince during her ANTI world tour stop in Calgary, Alberta.
“A lot of us have started making music and listening to music because of Prince, so right now I just want to honor him, me and my crew, and you guys,” Rihanna said. “Let’s shine some light to heaven for Prince right now.”
