Prince Fans' Massive 'Purple Rain' Sing Along Shuts Down Streets

Prince's legion of fans recreated the closing scene of "Purple Rain" ... on a much bigger scale, and it was pretty awesome to see from above.

Mourners gathered in downtown Minneapolis Thursday night, and a reporter had the perfect birdseye view when the crowd of several hundred people sang along to Prince's signature anthem.

"Y'know what I'm singing about up here ... C'mon raise your hand!"
