The Purple One may be gone, but his legacy continues to live on.

Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan headlined a star-studded tribute concert to Prince, nearly six months after the music legend's death.

On Thursday, the singers took the stage at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota to duet on Prince's I Feel for You. The duo then performed the late singer's hit 1999, getting the sold-out audience partying like it was, well… 1999.

Other stars in the lineup were Tori Kelly, Doug E. Fresh, Judith Hill, and Jessie J — who joined as a last minute replacement after Christina Aguilera canceled due to a "vocal illness."

The celebration also included a message from President Obama, who kicked off the event in a video message praising the music icon, saying:

"Thank you, Prince … for all the great work that you've done. You'll be in our hearts forever."

According to the StarTribune, some fans who logged on right at 10 a.m. — when tickets became available on Ticketmaster — were greeted with this message:

"No tickets but keep trying. Other fans may have reserved and released seats!"

We can't say we're surprised how quickly the October 13 show sold out, considering the lineup includes Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, Chaka Khan, John Mayer, Tori Kelly, Anita Baker, Doug E. Fresh, Luke James, Bilal, Mint Condition, Morris Day and the Time, Judith Hill, and Liv Warfield.

On Ticketmaster, prices ranged from $19.99 to $152.50, and already ticket holders are trying to flip their passes on sites like Stubhub and SeatGeek for a pretty steep profit.

The stars will take the stage at Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota next month to honor the iconic artist.

Chaka Khan Wasn't 'Shocked' When She Found Out Bobbi Kristina Was Hospitalized

no title

This is so devastating.

It's been months since Bobbi Kristina entered the hospital after being found face down in her bathtub, but sadly her condition has not improved — she's still in a medically induced coma.

While her whole family is hoping for the best, music legend Chaka Khan revealed she isn't really surprised by the situation.

The 62-year-old, who was also a close friend to Whitney Houston, told The Mirror UK:

"I can't say I was shocked. But I was definitely hurt, disappointed. I've been in conversation with the family. Everyone's devastated, everyone. I love Bobbi Kristina, I love Whitney, I love Bobby Brown. I love Cissy — I love them all. But we just have to wait for what happens next. All I want to do is be there for them. I just need to pray."

Chaka has been through her fair share of drug addictions, so when she heard the police found drugs at BK's home, she was disappointed.

The Queen of Funk went on to tell the paper:

"Whitney would be devastated. I wish she was here… You really don't know what this is like for a mother until it happens to you. I think I'm pretty close to feeling what she would have felt and what she's feeling right now, wherever she is."

Poor thing.

This whole situation has been super hard on everyone — even those who aren't even close to the family.

Hopefully Krissi can pull through and defy all odds. We continue to send positive thoughts her way.
