See Madonna Perform Acoustic New York Gig to Support Clinton

Singer covers John Lennon’s “Imagine” during intimate five-song set at Washington Square Park

Madonna staged an intimate, acoustic Election Day eve concert at New York’s Washington Square Park in support of Hillary Clinton. During the five-song performance, the singer delivered an emotional take on John Lennon’s “Imagine.”

“This is a concert about unifying us, and it’s about keeping America great, not making America great,” Madonna told the Washington Square Park 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.”

Madonna’s set list also included acoustic renditions of her own “Like a Prayer,” “Don’t Tell Me,” “Express Yourself” and “Rebel Heart.”

In recent months, Madonna has ramped up her support for Clinton on social media. “Living For Hillary. Yes I vote for intelligence. I vote for equal rights for women and all minorities,” Madonna wrote on Instagram. “Women run the world now they have to get out and start supporting one another. No more misogynist feminists! No more misogyny. Get out and Vote.”

Madonna is one of many artists providing last-minute concerts on behalf of Clinton: On Monday, Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi will perform in Philadelphia to help swing the stage to the Democratic nominee, while Lady Gaga and Bon Jovi will attend a late-night Clinton rally in Raleigh, North Carolina.
