Madonna surprised the New Years Eve crowd at the Stonewall Inn in New York’s Greenwich Village. The bar kicked off the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1969 police-raid and subsequent riot that became the foundation of the LGBTQ revolution.
Madonna spoke to the crowd about the continued need for compassion, love, and equality for all before belting out her hit, “Like A Prayer” with her 13-year-old son, David Banda, who accompanied her with an acoustic guitar.
Madonna also sang Elvis Presley’s, Can’t Help Falling In Love.
“Let us never forget the Stonewall riots and those who bravely stood up and said ‘enough'” Madonna said to cheers from the crowd.
