Madonna has one hell of a heart, and it showed on Wednesday night (December 9) when the Queen of Pop staked out a part of Place de la République in Paris for an impromptu acoustic performance in honor of the victims of the November 13th terrorist attacks.
With her guitarist Monte Pittman and son Daniel by her side, Madge found herself surrounded by a small group of people, who all joined in on her spontaneous performance of John Lennon's "Imagine," her own "Ghosttown" and "Like a Prayer" in honor of the victims of the tragedy, which occurred exactly one month ago.
"Everybody knows why we're here," Madonna told the crowd. "We just want to sing a few songs about peace, just to spread love and joy, and to pay our honor and respect to the people who died almost four weeks ago. And to spread light…We all need it."
Madonna is currently busy on her worldwide "Rebel Heart Tour" and spoke about the tragedy just one day after the massacre during her show in Stockholm, Sweden. "It's been really hard actually to get through the show, because in many ways, I feel torn," she told the crowd. "Like, why am I up here dancing and having fun when people are crying over the loss of their loved ones? However, that is exactly what these people want us to do. They want to shut us up. They want to silence us. And we won't let them."
