Grab a blanket because you're about to get chills watching the Minnesota Orchestra's tribute to Prince during the halftime show of the Vikings-Packers game at U.S. Bank Stadium Sunday night.

More than 60,000 fans were inside the stadium, most of them holding cell phones to the sky as the Orchestra and Prince's band wowed with a rendition of "Purple Rain" while a video tribute to Prince projected onto the field.
