Kesha‘s prayers have been answered with a show of solidarity.
The 30-year-old singer showed her support for the #MeToo movement as she performed “Praying” on the 60th Grammy stage. Camila Cabello, Cyndi Lauper, Julia Michaels, Bebe Rexha and Andra Day joined Kesha to sing her hit comeback song. They began with an a cappella take on a few key lines from the song before Kesha stepped forward to sing her hit comeback single. The performance ended with Kesha crying and hugging her fellow vocalists who stood by her side.
The lead single appears off the triumphant 2017 record Rainbow, “Praying” sees Kesha reflecting on her emotional, years-long legal battle against her former producer, Dr. Luke, who she’s accused of sexual and verbal assault. (Dr. Luke has denied the claims in court and on social media.)
“I’m proud of who I am/No more monsters/I can breathe again,” she sang through tears. “And you said that I was done/Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come.”
After a career of over a decade, Kesha received her first Grammy nominations this year, including Best Pop Vocal Album. (She lost to Ed Sheeran’s Divide.) Rainbow debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200.
