Tributes to Prince spring up across the US
CHANHASSEN, Minn.- Tributes to Prince are springing up across the country, on buildings, bridges and Broadway.
In New Orleans, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome glowed Thursday night with the late singer's signature purple, as did San Francisco's City Hall and Madison Square Garden in New York.
In Minnesota, where Prince was found dead Thursday in his suburban Minneapolis compound, the Star Tribune reports the Interstate 35 West bridge over the Mississippi River was bathed in purple light. A dance party in downtown Minneapolis was expected to go all night.
A vigil quickly turned into a party at Los Angeles' Leimert Plaza Park, where dozens danced as huge speakers blasted Prince hits and deep cuts. Some wiped away tears but most treated the gathering as a celebration.
Stars of Broadway's "The Color Purple" performed a rendition of Prince's hit "Purple Rain." The show posted a video of the performance led by Jennifer Hudson and Cynthia Erivo online late Thursday.
