Madonna's birthday surprise
13:30 17 August 2006
Madonna was left overjoyed last night (16.08.06) after fans sang 'Happy Birthday' to her as she performed on stage.
The pop superstar was singing at London's Wembley Arena when her team of backing singers stopped the show mid-way and urged the audience to celebrate her 48th birthday.
Almost immediately 12,000 fans burst into song leaving Madonna emotionally moved.
She told the crowd: "I cannot think of a better way to spend my birthday than with you tonight."
Madonna, who is married to British film director Guy Ritchie, thanked the fans for their tribute and admitted she would like world peace as her birthday gift.
This year's birthday is certainly much less eventful than the star's birthday last year.
Then, Madonna was thrown from a horse bought for her by Guy. She was left with a broken collar bone, three cracked ribs and a fractured hand.
