It was 27 years ago today on March 3, 1989, when one of MADONNA‘s most enduring hits and what is widely regarded as her best song ever, Like A Prayer was released.

The title track to her 1989 album, also acclaimed to be one of her best, the song went on to become her 7th No. 1 single in the Billboard 100.

Accompanied by the controversial (but critically acclaimed) music video, Madonna has established herself as a true musical artist by showing a level of maturity that the world has not seen from her before and at the same time feistiness in provoking public discussion on religion and sexuality and breaking boundaries in what is considered acceptable in pop culture.


Madonna has performed Like A Prayer live on a number of her tours beginning with Blond Ambition in 1990, Re-Invention Tour in 2004, Sticky & Sweet Tour in 2008 and for the MDNA Tour in 2012.

Most recently, she has also sang Like A Prayer in a number of shows for her Rebel Heart Tour including the first night of her Manila stop on February 24 at the Mall of Asia Arena which was met by a lively and enthusiastic crowd eager to hear more of her classics.
