W Magazine bosses asked celebrities, including Harington and Evans to pay homage to the Purple Rain star by reading lyrics from their favourite Prince songs.

Other stars to take part in the tribue include Chiwetel Ejiofor, Cindy Crawford, Ethan Hawke, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Elle Fanning.

Their dramatic renditions went live on Tuesday and have gone viral as Prince fans around the world celebrate the birth of their late hero.

Harington and model Crawford tackled Little Red Corvette, while Evans took the assignment very seriously and sang a snippet from Diamonds and Pearls a cappella.

Maleficent star Fanning, and Supergirl actress Melissa Benoist also chose to sing rather than speak as they belted out Kiss.

Prince's birthday was also remembered in his native Minnesota on Tuesday after the state's Governor declared June 7 'Prince Day'.
