This Facebook user posted this extremely rare video footage of the first time PRINCE performed his career-defining epic PURPLE RAIN in 1983 at First Avenue Minneapolis. 

 

The video, which will bring any PRINCE fan all sorts of feels, contains some amazing commentary about the song, the recording process, and little tidbits which tell the 'story behind the song' which really is the defining work of an artist whom was called home too soon. 

 

It's got over FOUR MILLION views. Feel free to add a few more.
