Hudson, who currently stars in the Broadway play The Color Purple, took a moment at the end of her show to address the crowd saying:

"I'm not a speaker by any means. I did not expect to have to speak on tonight, but God has his way. As we all know, today we lost a legend. Ooh, Jesus, we lost a legend who was a good friend of mine: Prince, who was dear to all of us. Every single one of us."

The 34-year-old actress went on to talk about her personal relationship with the deceased musician before getting the cast to sing Purple Rain with her!

Jennifer Hudson & James Corden Make Songs In The Public Domain Sound Effing AH-Mazing! Watch The Budget-Friendly Performance!

Who says top-notch musical entertainment has to come at a price?

James Corden has been killing it with his Late Late Show musical segments — like the uber popular Carpool Karaoke. Get it? Uber because cars? LOLz!

But getting the rights to play major pop songs on television doesn't come cheap!

Video: Corden & Cuba Gooding Jr. Have An Epic Break Dance Battle!

So the late night host thought he would do CBS a favor (either that, or his budget was actually cut — LOLz!) by only singing songs in the public domain.

With the help of the incredibly talented Jennifer Hudson, Corden jammed out to elementary school faves like Skip To My Lou, Old McDonald, and London Bridge — but totally brought down the house with a gospel rendition of If You're Happy And You Know It!

Ch-ch-check out the clap-happy performance (above)!
