On February 25, the seven-time Grammy award-winner finally granted her Filipino fans' most ardent wish for her to perform the chart-topping hit.

Madonna was aware that the Philippines was commemorating the 30th anniversary of the EDSA Revolution.

“Thirty years ago, today, something very important happened here in the Philippines. You fought for your freedom,” said Madonna at the second night of her Manila concert before singing “Crazy For You.”

Moments later, Madonna rendered an acoustic performance of her hit ballad with her tour guitarist as she roamed the stage. To their delight, fans lit up the MOA Arena using their smartphones and waved it as Madonna performed the song.

This is the first time her Filipino fans have seen her perform the song live in more than 30 years since its release. It has been a long time since the Queen of Pop performed it on the concert stage.

“Crazy For You” is Madonna's first ballad song and second No. 1 single on Billboard Hot 100 music chart included in the sound track of the 1985 movie titled Vision Quest.

Madonna has only included the song in her two concert tours: The Virgin Tour in 1985 and Re-Invention World Tour in 2004.
