WATCH: Madonna Performs Acoustic Concert at New York City Park to Support Hillary Clinton

Posted on

Madonna is stumping for Hillary Clinton – and using her music to do so!

The singer held an impromptu performance at New York City’s Washington Square Park on Monday night, just one day before the election. Madonna, who first announced the intimate acoustic concert on social media Friday, was surrounded by hundreds of fans as she strummed her guitar next to 11-year-old son David and her guitarist Monte Pittman.

During the 30-minute gig, the 58-year-old Madge sung her hits like “Like a Prayer,” “Don’t Tell Me,” “Express Yourself” and “Rebel Heart” along with an emotional cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine.”

In addition to her five-song set list, Madonna delivered a speech as to why she’s supporting the Democratic nominee.

“This is a concert about unifying us, and it’s about keeping America great, not making America great,” she told the crowd. “This is a concert about peace, and we are trying to elect – we are going to elect – a president that is going to keep America the great country that it is and has the potential to be.”

While Madonna was in N.Y.C., Clinton was in Philadelphia for a rally at Independence Hall attended by President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, daughter Chelsea Clinton and husband, former President Bill Clinton.

Hillary then hopped aboard a plane and jetted to North Carolina, where Lady Gaga and Bon Jovi performed at a late-night rally in Raleigh.
