US rapper Macklemore paid tribute to Prince during his Belfast concert.

Prince died on Thursday after the 57-year-old was found collapsed in his home in Minnesota.

During his concert at the SSE Arena, Macklemore said he was extremely grateful for Prince's contribution to music.

He told the thousands in the arena: "We lost a musical icon, a musical genius by the name of Prince and if there is one thing Prince taught me is that when you step on stage this is a sanctuary.
