The rain was coming down the night Prince took the stage at halftime of Super Bowl 41 in 2007. That was just fine with Prince, who died on Thursday at the age of 57.
FOX's Chris Hoenig has more:
It's the Super Bowl 41 halftime show Prince may be best remembered for. That night in 2007 in a driving rain in Miami playing live in front of a 100,000 football fans:
(Prince) "Let's go crazy."
NFL.com with a special look back at a show that didn't just showcase his music, but covers:
(Prince) "All along the watchtower, Prince has kept a view."
And of course...
(Prince) "Purple rain, purple rain."
'Purple Rain' in the rain.
