Rain cancels Saturday at Jazz Fest

Stevie Wonder's Saturday morning soundcheck included Prince's "Purple Rain," seemingly setting up his headlining set at the 2016 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for one of the biggest tributes to the late artist over the two festival weekends.

Instead, Wonder sang it with the crowd through a megaphone from the Acura Stage after announcing his 5 p.m. show had been canceled. So were all other stages for the rest of the day ? including sets from Beck and Snoop Dogg and the second half of sets from Dr. John and Hurray for the Riff Raff, among others ? after heavy downpours*formed shin-deep pools and winds sent water onto stage equipment.?
