2016 BET Awards - Show

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house after Jennifer Hudson paid tribute to the late Prince at this year’s BET Awards on Sunday night.

The Oscar-winning singer took to Instagram after her heartwrenching performance to open up about paying homage to the Purple One. She posted a selfie with the view of LA behind her, captioning it, “Back in my sweats and by the pool! I hope yal felt my heart tonight in my tribute to Prince!”

She even went into detail about a fond memory she has of Prince, saying, “One of the things Prince told me that I will never forget he said ‘take it to church, Jennifer…I can only hope he’s pleased!”

The Prince tribute was one of the highlights of the night—and take it to church, she did.
