Grammys 2018: Kesha gives #MeToo movement another powerful voice

Grammys 2018: Kesha gives #MeToo movement another powerful voice

Kesha thanked the Recording Academy and the women who took the Grammys stage with her Sunday night during her emotional performance of "Praying".

The singer and actress said that it's not just in Hollywood or in Washington - it's everywhere, including the music industry.

Kesha delivered a powerhouse performance of her song "Praying" at the 2018 Grammy Awards in New York City on Sunday night, and people on Twitter were quick to praise the singer.

"You brought the flames and you put me through hell; I had to learn how to fight for myself", Kesha sang.

The most poignant Grammys performances transcend sheer technical prowess and tap into the most pressing sociopolitical issues of the moment. "We say Time's Up for pay inequality, Time's Up for discrimination or harassment of any kind, and the abuse of power".

Janelle Monáe says it's times up in the music industry. During her appearance, we see countless types of women behind her: young and old, Black, white, and Latina. That didn't happen, but she did have an opportunity to perform the song with some stars of past and present, including Camila Cabello, Cyndi Lauper, and many more.

"Praying" is an autobiographical song clearly directed at Dr. Luke, the producer whom Kesha accuses of raping and psychologically tormenting her. "Praying" is Kesha's ballad, off her latest album Rainbow, about the abuses she suffered. But the performance raises the question of how many left speechless in the audience would still gladly collaborate with Dr. Luke. "It's also about hoping everyone, even someone who hurt you, can heal".

Janelle Monae introduced Kesha, who was thrust to the forefront of the #MeToo movement a year ago when she stood up to Dr. Luke - her abuser - and triumphed.
