Watch D’Angelo’s performance of Sometimes It Snows In April

D’Angelo pays tribute to one of his biggest inspirations on The Tonight Show

D’Angelo has appeared on The Tonight Show, performing a touching rendition of an 1986 Prince track, Sometimes It Snows In April. D’Angelo has frequently referred to Prince as one of his greatest inspirations.

Accompanied by actress Maya Rudolph’s Prince tribute act Princess, the singer appeared behind a grand piano, wearing a hat and fur jacket Prince would have definitely approved of. The song choice seems especially appropriate as a flurry of snow hit several UK locations yesterday.
