Madonna held a surprise concert in NYC’s Washington Square Park last night at 7:30 pm, announcing the gig just a half hour before it was set to begin. A growing crowd joined the singer in the park for the acoustic folk-concert-like concert, billed as “a surprise, impromptu rally for Hillary Rodham Clinton.” in which she performed “Express Yourself”, “Don’t Tell Me”, John Lennon’s “Imagine”, “Like a Prayer”, Pete Seeger’s “If I Had a Hammer”, and “Rebel Heart”.
Madonna was joined on guitar by her son David Banda.
Said MAdonna as she began the show:
“This concert is about unifying us. How are we going to keep America great? We are going to elect a president who does not discriminate against women, who does not discriminate against the LGBT community, who does not discriminate against people of color, that does not want to build a wall around our country and separate us from the rest of the world. This is a concert about peace.”
