President Obama Delivers Remarks At The White House's International Jazz Day ConcertSource: Pool / Getty

Right before the Blackest White House Correspondents’ dinner ever, the White House hosted the International Jazz Day All-Star Global Concert, EW reports.

Aretha Franklin paid homage to Prince, who passed April 21st at age 57.

President Barack Obama gave a speech prior to the concert, hailing Prince as a “creative icon.”

Mariah Carey, Usher and Lady Gaga also paid tribute to the fallen star, but Aretha’s vocals made our jaws drop.

Against the backdrop of an illuminated White House, Franklin sang her rendition of “Purple Rain,” to the crowd.

We are sure Prince was looking down on the moment with pride and joy.
