Madonna Shares Cover Of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' In Birthday Message


From pictures of their favorite Madonna looks to naming their top tracks by the songstress, fans paid tribute to the "Queen of Pop" on Thursday as the "Material Girl" turned 60.

Madonna is celebrating her 60th birthday in style, in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh.

"Also, the global payment firm Ripple has announced it will be matching all donations to Madonna's fundraiser", she wrote on Facebook.

The American singer-songwriter had earlier shared a "pre-birthday selfie" of herself wearing Berber clothing in what she called a celebration of the North African people's culture.

"Happy birthday to Lady @Madonna!", singer Kylie Minogue tweeted.

In one photo, the singer/songwriter, actress, director and mother of six held up a sign reading "The Queen", writing "In case someone forgot!" alongside the #birthday hashtag. What a force and an inspiration.

It's Madonna's birthday, and she'll give back if she wants to.

French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier shared a photo of himself with Madonna at the MET Gala in NY earlier this year. In a note posted with the clip, she said the video was a thank-you to fans who had donated to a fundraiser for orphans and children in Malawi, launched to coincide with her birthday on August 16. The singer has adopted four children from Malawi, including twin girls previous year.

Now the Queen of Pop has released her full performance online, and it includes her singing her classic "Like A Prayer"-backed by a monk choir-a cover of "Hallelujah", and most excitingly, a new song titled "Beautiful Game".
