Mariah Carey broke down in tears on Thursday night as she paid tribute to the late, Prince.
During the singer’s Sweet Fantasy World Tour at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, an emotional songstress belted out her classic, “One Sweet Day” in honor of her longtime friend.
“I didn’t know if I was able to come out here and put on a show and be festive, but I said, ‘I’m in Paris and that’s what Prince would want me to do.’ To get through it rather than just make everything bleak, we need to take this and honor this,” she said before dedicating the track.
“He was a friend to me, too, and he talked me through some times I really, really needed somebody. He was an incredible person if you never got to meet him,” Carey said. “I’m sure his music has touched every single person in here, so let’s have a moment of silence for Prince.”
She added, “It’s a very sad day but we remember the life of somebody who will always be treasured.”
On Thursday, Carey also shared an image of herself on Instagram alongside the late singer with the caption:
“Genius, legend, inspiration, friend. The world will miss you. I’ll never get over it.”
Prince died Thursday inside his Paisley Park Studios in Minnesota. He was 57.
