The “Criminal” singer, 36, shared a live rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” on Instagram with a sentimental message. “I was really inspired yesterday by @madonna’s post. She’s right… silence = death! These words really stuck with me, because they are so true,” she began. As previously reported, Madonna covered Spears’ “Toxic” for Worlds AIDS Day and shared her own stirring version on Friday, December 1, before wishing Spears a happy birthday.
“I’ve always wanted to do a performance like this… singing in a pretty little black dress, with a simple 360, one take shot! I figured since it was my birthday, why not go for it?! So boom,” Spears continued. “When the clock struck 12:00, I did it!!! Thank you all for the beautiful birthday wishes, and for letting me do what I love. I appreciate you more than you will ever know!!!!”
