Tributes continue to pour in from the world over the sudden death of pop music icon Prince, who passed away on April 21st. During their show in Horsens, Denmark last night, The Dixie Chicks honored the “Purple Rain” singer through covering “Nothing Compares 2 U.”
Prince originally wrote “Nothing Compares 2 U” for the Family, a band formed by him. It appeared on their self-titled album in 1985. Sinead O’Connor’s version came out in 1990 as the second single to her sophomore album, “I Do Not What I Haven’t Got.” O’Connor’s version, along with its famous video, catapulted the song and its singer into the charts and worldwide fame.
