PARK RIDGE, Ill. (AP) - An acclaimed home Christmas-light show in suburban Chicago features purple lights this year in a tribute to the rock star who sang “Purple Rain.”

The Chicago Tribune (https://trib.in/2gZPdCR) reports that the Grant-Grusecki home in Park Ridge decided to add the Prince tribute shortly after the Minnesota-based artist died of an opioids overdose in April. Among Prince’s many hits was the song “Purple Rain.”

Tina Grusecki says the family spends much of the year designing the elaborate show. It includes flashing lights synchronized to music that passing cars can hear on a radio channel. The show includes standards, such as “Holly Jolly Christmas” and “All Alone on Christmas.”

The Prince tribute has a medley of his songs, an illuminated drum kit - and plenty of purple lights.
