WATCH: Kesha’s Riveting Performance of Lady Gaga’s ‘Til It Happens to You’
Proceed with caution.
This video of Kesha performing “Til It Happens to You”, Lady Gaga’s song from The Hunting Ground dedicated to survivors of sexual assault, is a gripping rendition of the track amid the artist’s ongoing battle with Sony producer Dr. Luke, whom she sued in 2014 for sexual assault. Kesha took the stage at The Humane Society of the United States Los Angeles Gala to address attendees before segueing into the ballad.
“I want to dedicate this song to every man, woman, child, and animal that has ever been abused,” she said.
The song is co-written by Gaga and Diane Warren, who was also present at the gala that evening. Gaga’s performance of “Til It Happens to You” was a breathtaking moment from the 2016 Oscar Awards when an army of sexual assault survivors emerged onstage to stand by her side. That same night, Gaga spoke out on her own story of abuse.
The “Poker Face” singer congratulated Kesha on her gusto at the Humane Society gala.
Killed it @KeshaRose. I could feel your pain. Girl these boys won’t be in charge forever. The wisdom of women is rising. Let’s get louder
