Madonna gave an impromptu performance in Paris on Wednesday in honor of the terrorist attack victims.

The pop diva was already in Paris on a stop during her Rebel Heart Tour. After the show, Madonna tweeted that she would be doing an after-show performance at the Place de la République, the informal memorial site for the victims.

“Im singing some songs in place de la republique. Meet me there now #Paris . #rightnow #aftershow #rebelheartour,” Madonna wrote.

Madonna sang acoustic versions of her hits such as “Like a Virgin” and cover songs like John Lennon’s “Imagine” with her son, David Banda, and her guitarist, Monte Pittman. She invited the small crowd to sing along with them.

When the show was over, Madonna tweeted out a photo of her and her son singing together with the hashtag “#proudmama.”
