2 Min Read

During her performance at Madison Square Garden in New York on Monday, Madonna gave an exceptional gift to her 18-year-old daughter Mercy on her birthday. During her live show, she started singing  “Happy Birthday”, where fans also joined the singer and surprised Mercy. 

During the performance, Madonna gave Mercy a hug while she cried, “Oh my god!” and placed her palm to her mouth. A chorus of cheers indicated to the audience why the singer sang “Happy Birthday”. 

Madonna thanked the audience before getting up and taking her daughter to the side of the stage. “Beautiful girl, stand up, stand up. Watch this queen, please!

The “Vogue” singer continued on, “That’s what a beautiful queen looks like.”

After that, an unnamed fan brought Mercy a lighted candle and told her “had to make a wish.” With her eyes closed, the 18-year-old held the candle and paused to make a wish before blowing it out to the cheers of the arena’s fans.

A few moments later, Madonna asked Mercy, “Would you like a sip?” while holding a drink.”Oh no, 18’s not the drinking age here,” she jokingly said.

After Madonna acknowledged the crowd, Mercy took a seat at the piano on stage. The adolescent is a part of the singer’s tour and plays the piano version of her 1992 hit song “Bad Girl.” With that, Mercy acknowledged fans and said “I love you all!”

The crowd applauded once again as Madonna embraced Mercy and said, “That’s my girl.”

On Monday, the 65-year-old “Vogue” singer celebrated her daughter Chifundo “Mercy” James’ 18th birthday by sharing a carousel picture on social media platform. The lovely montage alongwith Mercy’s tasteful piano performance of Erik Satie’s “Gnossienne No. 1.”
