AceShowbiz - Nicole Scherzinger has returned to her Hawaiian roots to support activists protesting the construction of a massive telescope on sacred Mauna Kea.
She made a surprise visit to the dormant volcano site to support those opposed to the telescope on Sunday (August 18).
The Hawaiian native, 41, performed a rendition of Prince's "Purple Rain", and teared up as she told the activists her late friend would be very proud of their efforts to halt construction.
The former The Pussycat Dolls star also posted shots of herself on an Oahu beach at sunset on social media, adding the caption: "Face to face with the sun. She's home."
