Stevie Wonder -- Real Rain Gives Way to Purple Rain Tribute

Stevie Wonder told a disappointed crowd in New Orleans Jazz Fest was being torpedoed by a rainstorm, but he brought them back to life with a different type of rain.

Stevie, bullhorn in hand, led a tribute to Prince with a rousing rendition of "Purple Rain."   

The crowd at least left semi-satisfied.
