Maya Rudolph & D'Angelo Pay Tribute To Prince On The Tonight Show! Watch Them Poignantly Perform Sometimes It Snows In April!
On Tuesday's show, D'Angelo took the stage with Prince cover band Princess – made up of Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum — for an emotional performance of Sometimes It Snows in April.
With the entire stage draped in purple lighting, D'Angelo played the keyboard as Rudolph and Lieberum sang the backup harmonies on the 1986 track.

Sounds like a pretty easy paycheck — the 55-year-old can literally do that in his sleep! LOLz
Even though we won't be hearing any riveting dialogue from Penn, we're sure he will grunt and groan with serious conviction!
Hear the actor's vocal samplings when Angry Birds hits theaters on May 20!
