Cyndi Lauper Performs ‘When You Were Mine’ for Prince

By Amanda Wicks

It’s been over a month since the world lost Prince, but that hasn’t stopped artists continuing to pay tribute to the legendary musician. Cyndi Lauper performed a rousing version of “When You Were Mine” that would have made the Purple One proud last night (May 25) at New York’s Beacon Theatre.

The song was originally on Prince’s classic 1980 album, Dirty Mind, and Lauper covered it on her  1983 debut She’s So Unusual. Lauper brought her energy to the stage, dancing around to the synth-laden classic. Her backing band jammed towards the end in a move that was pure Prince.

Lauper’s performance last night marks the first of her two-night sold out stand at the venue (she’s co-headlining with Boy George).
