Last night, the cast of Broadway’s award-winning rap musical Hamilton took a moment to pay tribute to the late, great Prince. The cast honored him with a tribute of “Let’s Go Crazy.”
According to Rolling Stone, the show’s musical director, Alex Lacamoire, spent all day yesterday working on the number with the cast. Lin-Manuel Miranda, the star and mastermind behind Hamilton was one of many celebrities who took to Twitter to pay homage to the Purple One.
Step away from your computer. Walk around, blast some Prince.
It’s the only thing that has saved my day, it may save yours.

Hamilton was not the only Broadway play to pay tribute to the legend. The cast of The Color Purple also took a moment to remember Prince with an emotional cast performance of “Purple Rain.”
