Lenny Kravitz paid tribute to Prince at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony on Friday.

The two had been longtime friends, according to Rolling Stone. And 52-year-old Kravitz played two of the Purple One's songs: "When Doves Cry" and "The Cross."

He brought a whole choir on the stage with him to perform. You can watch the whole performance here.

HBO says this marked the 32nd annual induction ceremony. This year's inductees were Joan Baez, Electric Light Orchestra, Journey, Pearl Jam, Tupac Shakur, and Yes.

To be eligible, musicians must have released their first single or album at least 25 years ago. So the 2017 nominees had to release their first recording by 1991.

HBO says the ceremony will premiere April 29 at 8 p.m.
