Like A Dream: Madonna Hands Mike To Man Who Vogued His Bar Mitzvah

Video of Shaun Sperling dancing to "Vogue" at his bar mitzvah in 1992 went viral a few weeks ago, and this week he had the opportunity to sing a few words with Madonna herself at one of her shows at the United Center. It was completely coincidental. Madge was walking about putting the microphone in front of a few fans during "Like A Prayer," when she happened to hand it to Sperling. He wrote on Facebook:
At the second to last song, 'Like a Prayer', Madonna came right up to me and we locked eyes, she pointed the mic at me and I sang a verse. She smiled and gave me a thumbs up like she knew!
Watch the video below. Sperling has the mike around 1:53. Then, head to "Shaun's Gay Bar Mitzvah" at Mary's Attic next Saturday to congratulate him. The 33-year-old lawyer promises to "strike a pose" by recreating his bar mitzvah "Vogue" dance—with backup dancers— at a Madonna-themed party with tunes from 1992.
Thanks to Tony Peregrin for the tip! And because we can't watch this enough, here is Sperling's 1992 bar mitzvah dance to "Vogue."
