Chris Martin Teamed Up With A Real-Life School Of Rock To Honor Prince

Passing the Purple One down to the next generation

After sharing the stage with his son Moses for his 10th birthday, Chris Martin has found even more middle school kids to jam with.

The Coldplay singer fronted a band of Crossroads School students during a charity concert benefiting pediatric cancer research yesterday (April 25). Together, they covered Prince’s “Raspberry Beret” and performed a rare live rendition of Coldplay’s song “Twisted Logic” from the band's 2005 album, X&Y.

The kids in Martin’s new band A-Side had never heard “Raspberry Beret” before he introduced them to it, but he says they learned to play it in about three hours.

Martin’s co-vocalist on the Prince cut was a young cancer survivor named Jaxon. Watch them pay tribute to Prince together below.
