Recording superstar Prince died in his home at the age of 57 on Thursday. The legendary musician left a long legacy, which often intersected with sports. He appeared at a Warriors game just last month.

At Super Bowl XLI, Prince turned in one of the finest halftime shows in the game’s history. He didn't let rain stop him from taking the field and bringing down the house with a medley of some of his biggest hits.

You can watch the performance, which was ranked as the best Super Bowl performance of all time by Sports Illustrated, below.

The “Purple Rain” singer was also known for his prowess on the basketball court as a younger man, as noted by a story in his hometown Star Tribune.
