Who is Prince? A little help

Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016) was an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, dancer, actor, and director. A virtuoso guitarist known for his genre work, wide singing voice and flamboyant stage performances, Prince is considered one of the greatest musicians of all time. His innovative music combined a wide range of styles including funk, rock, R&B, new wave, soul, psychedelia and pop. Prince was a pioneer of the late 1970s Minneapolis sound, a funk rock subgenre of synthpop and new wave.

original video "Purple Rain" Prince:

In 2016, Pink Floyd frontman David Gilmour honored the late Prince by performing a standout mashup of the classic "Comfortably Numb" and Prince's smash hit "Purple Rain" during a concert at London's Royal Albert Hall.

While he was playing, the stage turned purple - the audience was delighted with such a unique performance.

It was a concert from David's tour, which he held in support of his latest album. "Rattle That Lock". The show was charitable: all the money went to the Teenage Cancer Trust (an organization to fight teen cancer).

This is a really beautiful tribute from one very talented musician to another equally talented one. Recording of that concert:
