There are many legendary moments from the singer-songwriter’s career worth watching and remembering in tribute after his passing. And one of them is NFL-related, with Prince absolutely tearing down the house at Super Bowl XLI in what may be the greatest halftime performance ever.
The league doesn’t like to embed video (of course) but you can go here to watch the behind-the-scenes information about Prince’s show, where he performed “Purple Rain” during a monsoon.
Everyone remembers this game as an incredible South Florida monsoon — the Bears and Colts took the field with it pouring down rain (Devin Hester returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown).
