Pop queen Madonna reduced her sold-out Paris audience to tears when she dedicated her cover version of late John Lennon's IMAGINE to victims of the recent Russian hostage crisis.

The MATERIAL GIRL interrupted her Sunday night (05SEP04) REINVENTION show - the last of four in France - to speak about the horrific tragedy at a Beslan school that left more than 350 dead, including children, teachers, mothers and soldiers.

The sexy singer begged her fans to keep the victims in their prayers and reflect upon Lennon's touching lyrics, while horrific footage of war was projected behind her on huge screens.
