Back in April, Alicia Keys delivered a powerful tribute to the late music legend Prince at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Keys performed Prince’s 1982 ballad “How Come You Don’t Call Me,” which she also covered in 2001 on her debut album Songs in A Minor.

Now available from the R&B songstress’ YouTube, the almost 10-minute video features clips of Prince, a heartfelt opening speech from Keys and a snippet from the moment Keys had the honor of inducting the iconic figure into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in 2004.

This follows last month’s debut of Keys’ newest single, “In Common.”  She is working on a new LP.

Watch Alicia Keys’ performance of “How Come You Don’t Call Me” below.
