Watch Prince’s Unforgettable Halftime Performance at the Super Bowl in the Pouring Rain

The hallmark of Prince’s talent wasn’t just his songwriting ability, but his ability to deliver performances that transcended what you imagined was possible, even for a rock star. With the singer’s passing earlier today, there are many ways to remember his talent, but few moments that encapsulate his showmanship better than his 2007* halftime show at the Super Bowl. Prince took the stage for a medley of his greatest hits and covers of work by other musicians, concluding with this iconic performance of “Purple Rain.” He turns the storm to his advantage, convincing you — as he often did — that it was all part of his design.
