Listen: Prince Plays “Purple Rain” and “Kiss” Live on Piano, Covers Ray Charles & David Bowie



With Prince‘s untimely passing on Thursday (April 21), fans all over the world have been celebrating the iconic artist, and plenty are wanting to hear and learn even more about the enigmatic superstar.

In January, Prince went on his first-ever “Piano & a Microphone Tour.” It was the only time anyone has ever heard hits like “Purple Rain” and “Kiss” played like this. Very few were able to witness these legendary moments live, but now we can at least hear some of them! During a moment while riffing on “Kiss,” Prince even threw a little more shade at the Kardashian’s!

In addition to his own classics, Prince also covered Ray Charles’ “Unchain My Heart” and David Bowie’s “Heroes.”

The recordings, which you can hear below, are from Prince’s February 28 show in Oakland, except for “Heroes,” which took place just last week on April 14 in Atlanta.

These are special! R.I.P. The Purple One!!
