Coldplay Pay Tribute to Prince with Acoustic ‘Sometimes It Snows in April’

By Amanda Wicks

In the wake of Prince’s death, artists of all different styles have paid tribute to the iconic musician by playing their favorite tunes by him. There have been a bevy of classics like “Purple Rain” and “Little Red Corvette,” but one song in particular has gotten quiet though no less important love from D’Angelo and now Coldplay.

Coldplay shared a video of Chris Martin performing Prince’s “Sometimes It Snows in April” with English folk singer Lianne La Havas at Copenhagen’s Telia Parken last night (July 6). The band as a whole sits out the tribute, letting La Havas’ acoustic guitar provide the only backing.

Although the crowd appreciates Martin’s at-time shaky but still steady vocals, they absolutely go wild when La Havas approaches the mic and lays down her singular style. It’s a sentimental moment honoring one of music’s greatest.
