The Revolution has made it their mission to celebrate the life and legacy of The Purple One. Prince’s talented backing band, made up of Lisa Coleman, Wendy Melvoin, Bobby Z, Brownmark, and Bobby Z, is back on tour, performing songs like “Purple Rain” and “Let’s Go Crazy” to pay tribute to the late legend.

Ranging from legends like Led Zeppelin to power vocalists like Janelle Monae, this playlist will inspire you, take you back, and might even have you singing at the top of your lungs.
