Madonna in Haiti at the invitation of her ex-husband, Sean Penn

America's queen of pop, the ever-current Madonna, has hopped on a plane and flown to Haiti after the encouragement of an old friend with ties to the country's rebuilding efforts. At the behest of her former husband, Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn, the 'Like a virgin' singer has come to the country for a few days' visit with her small son, Rocco.


The two divorced at the end of the 80's after a whirlwind romance and four years of marriage, but remained such good friends that Penn was able to wear her down and convince her that the trip would be worthwhile. The effort seems worth it as Madonna has taken photos, including one at the Mirebalais University Hospital, along with its staff, and posted them on Instagram, shedding light on her trip and giving attention to the cause to the millions of people across Instagram's huge social platform.

Penn had said, when he first announced Madonna's presence in Haiti that, with her singular platform as one of the most influential artists of all time, her attention on any subject is bound to bring awareness to an even wider demographic. This is important to Penn, and the foundation he started after the earthquake in 2010, the J/P Haiti Relief Organization, which, through the efforts of its founder and other members has found homes for thousands displaced following the devastation.

Already, it seems Madonna has taken to the task. Of her photo at the hospital in Mirebalais she wrote the caption, 'Revolution of love in Haiti.'
