(CelebrityAccess) — Pop star Madonna put on a previously unannounced live, acoustic performance in Washington Square Park on Monday night to bolster support for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Madonna performed some of her repertoire, including Like A Prayer and Express Yourself during the 20-minute concert, as well as covering John Lennon's Imagine, according to the New York Daily News.
Speaking to the crowd during the performance, Madonna described Clinton as “a president that is going to keep America the great country that it is.”
Madonna wasn't the only Clinton supporter to stage last minute events to urge voters to support Clinton. Bruce Springsteen performed a short set during a rally in support of Clinton on Monday.
"The choice tomorrow couldn’t be any clearer. Hillary’s candidacy is based on intelligence, experience, preparation and of an actual vision of America where everyone counts," Springsteen said per Rolling Stone. "Men and women, white and black, Hispanic and native. Where folks of all faiths and backgrounds can come together to address our problems in a reasonable and thoughtful way. That vision of America is essential to sustain, no matter how difficult its realization."
Lady Gaga also jumped in to bolster a Clinton rally, performing and giving a rousing speech during a campaign event in North Carolina on Monday.
As well, Beyonce and her husband Jay Z rallied voters in Cleveland on Friday, appearing on stage with Clinton and urging black voters and millennials to vote.
“I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman leading the country,” Beyoncé told the crowd at the event. “That’s why I’m with her,” she added, invoking Clinton's campaign slogan. – Staff Writers
