Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Pop icon Madonna surprised her Filipino fans on the second night of her Manila tour on Thursday (February 25) when she acknowledged the Filipinos' fight for democracy 30 years ago.

On that same day, the Philippines commemorated the anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution that overthrew the 20-year dictatorship of former president Ferdinand Marcos.

The Queen of Pop opened her spiel with, "I believe 30 years ago you fought for your freedom, am I correct? It's called People Power Freedom [sic], did I say that right? Up with democracy and freedom! That is the revolution of love. And that's what a rebel heart fights for. So on this very special occasion, I want to sing the song..."

And the crowd went wild as Madonna hit the first few notes of her first ballad song, "Crazy For You."

Madonna also said that she has not sung the song on stage in 30 years, but she also performed "Crazy For You" live during her Re-Invention World Tour in 2004.
