MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – On the second night of the Philippine stop of her Rebel Heart Tour, Madonna sang one of her hit songs onstage for the first time in a long time – "Crazy for You." (IN PHOTOS: Madonna’s ‘Rebel Heart’ concert live in Manila, day 2)
Madonna said that she wanted to do something special for the occasion. "30 years ago, today, something very important happened here in the Philippines. You fought for your freedom. Am I correct?" she said.
February 25 marks the 30th anniversary of the 1986 People Power Revolution, a peaceful revolution where thousands of Filipinos overthrew the Marcos dictatorship.
"Thank you for giving me a piece of your heart." We love you @Madonna! #RebelHeartTourManila #HuaweiXMadonna pic.twitter.com/yiDG54AcGZ — Huawei Device PH (@HuaweiDevicePH) February 25, 2016
She walked around her stage, reaching out to her fans along the way. The crowd sang along with her, and lit up the Mall of Asia Arena with their phones.

"Just for you! First time in the Philippines. And the first time that I have sung that song onstage in 30 years. That's crazy, right?" said Madonna.
"That is the revolution of love," she went on to say. "And that is what the rebel heart fights for."
Recorded in 1984, "Crazy for You" is a Billboard chart-topping single that later appeared in the soundtrack to the film Vision Quest (1985) and Madonna's 3rd studio album, True Blue (1986).
