On This Day 2007: Prince Performs Halftime

There is so much beauty in Prince's work. So many hits throughout the years. All the stories about him performing at Paisley Park to invited guests at 3 AM.

But I'll never forget this halftime performance that looked really wet. It seemed like the performers were going to lose their footing. It seemed like it might be difficult to perform in the storm that was causing all of the rain.

But it was poetic when the skies really opened up and the wind started blowing when Prince started playing Purple Rain.

This is some of the performance and the story behind putting on that halftime show.
