Kesha Performs ‘Til It Happens To You’ With Diane Warren
Oh, this is just fantastic. Last night, the Humane Society threw their annual gala to honor those who align themselves alongside the organization to fight for equal right amongst humans and animals. In a moment that was all too real, Kesha – a global ambassador for the Human Society – was joined by Diane Warren to give an emotionally charged performance of Lady Gaga and Diane’s Oscar nominated song ‘Til It Happens To You’.
Originally, ‘Til It Happens To You’ was written to capture the emotional turmoil that women endure after abuse; but its core themes and message are universal and 100% fit in this situation…especially with Kesha behind the vocals. Not only has Kesha fought for animal rights since the start of her career, but given the events currently surrounding the singer there couldn’t have been anybody else in that room to give a better rendition of this song.
It’s heartbreaking to watch her struggle during the song’s first few seconds, but it took a lot strength, power, and courage to do what she has done and what she did on that stage.
With so many people in the industry standing with Kesha, she’s well on her way to achieving her freedom. ‘True Colors‘ was just the start and this performance of ‘Til It Happens To You’ won’t be the last.
