Madonna honored the anniversary of the 2015 terrorist attacks during her performance in Paris on Monday night.

The pop icon reflected on a previous trip to the French capital, which took place weeks after the November 13, 2015 terrorist attacks, during her Celebration Tour stop.

While in Paris for her 2015 Rebel Hearts tour, Madonna and her son David Banda honored the victims of the coordinated attacks with a visit to the square near the Bataclan, the nightclub where one of the attacks occurred.

“This is a tragic event, and I remember singing with David in the Place de la République the last time I was here with the Rebel Heart tour – what little I could do to acknowledge this tragedy,” Madonna, 65, told the audience Monday. “But these tragedies keep happening, it never ends. And you can sometimes wonder, when is it going to end, and what can we do as human beings to change it?”

The Material Girl hitmaker then sang an acoustic version of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” encouraging the crowd to turn on the lights on their phones and sing along.

Shortly after she kicked off her trip in 2015, Madonna and her son, now 18, joined those who were mourning the victims of the attacks at Place de la République, where she led the crowd in singing an acoustic cover of John Lennon’s Imagine.

The pop singer is currently in the middle of the European leg of her Celebration Tour, which began in London on October 14. She is scheduled to begin the North American leg of the tour on December 13 in Brooklyn, New York.
