Madonna And David Banda

Madonna's adopted baby has been spotted wearing a Kabbalah bracelet. The one-year-old Malawi boy named David was wearing the distinctive red string around his wrist when he flew into New York from London's Heathrow airport with the 48-year-old singer last night. Madonna - who was accompanied by her other children, Lourdes, nine, and six-year-old Rocco - was also sporting the red band which is associated with the mystical religious off shoot of Judaism. Followers of the Kabbalah believe the band deflects "envious stars and looks of ill will". Madonna is in the US to defend her adoption of David in a series of television appearances and to promote her new children's book 'English Roses: Too Good To Be True'.The pop star has already given an exclusive interview with US chat show host Oprah Winfrey, which was conducted via satellite link from her home in London. Madonna is also expected to go on the evening entertainment program Dateline'. Her publicist Barbara Charone said: "She will be in New York for a couple of days promoting her book and for an NBC special on her world tour this year."
