Last night on the eve of Election Day in the U.S. Madonna held a surprise intimate show in New York’s Washington Square Park.
“This concert is about unifying us,” the Queen of Pop told the crowd. “How are we going to keep America great?”
Usually Madonna concerts are expensive visual spectacles but at this small acoustic performance there were no backup dancers or costume changes—only the singer playing a red guitar, backed by a musician and her son David.

“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,” she added. “This is a concert about peace.”
