WATCH: Madonna Rings in the New Year with Surprise Performance at NYC ClubJanuary 1, 2019
People may opt to celebrate New Year's Eve by going out or having a quiet night in. We can easily say, Madonna does not fall into the latter group.
And, last night (December 31), a lucky group of people were surprised when she popped up at NYC's Stonewall Inn, a famous gay bar known for helping launch the LGBT movement. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, a series of riots against a police raid.
Madonna shared some words with the gathering, discussing acceptance, and then performed two songs with her son, David, who is 13. David played a red guitar, accompanying his mother, as she sang her 1989 hit "Like a Prayer" and the 1961 Elvis Presley classic "Can't Help Falling in Love."
If you happened to be tucked into bed a little after midnight last night, here's a look at the performance:
The folks at Stonewall seemed delighted to have the surprise guest, putting up this note, exclaiming, "Madonna was here."
Oh, yes, she was. It sounds like a night to be remembered.
Happy New Year to everyone!! How are you starting off 2019?
