Madonna Performs at NYC's Stonewall Inn on New Year's Eve!

Madonna surprised fans by giving a special New Year’s Eve performance at the Stonewall Inn on Monday night (December 31) in New York City.

The legendary entertainer was just named an ambassador of the venue, ahead of its 50th anniversary. The Stonewall Inn is the site of the riots that helped launch the LGBTQ movement back in 1969.

Madonna, who wore a leather jacket, ripped jeans, and a New Year’s Eve bow on her head, spoke from rainbow printed cards.

“I stand here proudly at the place where pride began, the legendary Stonewall Inn, on the birth of a new year. We come together tonight to celebrate 50 years of revolution,” Madonna told the crowd (via Variety). “If we truly took the time to get to know one another we would find that we all bleed the same color and we all need to love and be loved. Let’s remember who and what we are fighting for — ourselves, for each other, but truly and most importantly, what are we fighting for? Let’s take a minute to reflect on how we can bring more love and peace into 2019, let’s look at how we can bring random acts of kindness. Maybe we can find an opening to bring the light in. Are you ready to do that?”

Madonna performed “Like a Prayer” and a cover of Elvis‘ “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
