**LOS ANGELES, CA (Hotwire News) - J-Hud reveals what the legendary Prince once told her. 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 performing his 1984 classic "Purple Rain."

Once of the best BET Awards giving a tribute to the late great "Master of Funk" who touched people all over the world since the late great "King of Pop" Michael Jackson.

People at the BET Awards have already called this, "One of the best Prince Tribute than what the Billboard Music Awards had earlier this year."

The Oscar-winning singer took to Instagram after her heart-wrenching 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.
