HARLEM, Manhattan — When Madonna wants to take you to church, you follow — and that’s just what a crowd in Harlem did this weekend.

The pop icon was spotted early Saturday morning leading a brass band along 125th Street to a nearby church while belting out a rendition of “Like A Prayer.”

The apparently impromptu parade took place after a performance at Ginny’s Supper Club in Harlem, according to Ariel Palitz, who shared videos on social media.

In one Instagram video outside the church, Madonna played a tambourine and encouraged the crowd to sing along as the area was swarmed by fans and photographers.
