YOU ALL WILL NOT SLANDER KESHA ROSE. The woman was on the verge of tears performing in front of an industry that dragged her through the mud for a decade. She deserves nothing less than RESPECT. #GRAMMYs

Kesha’s newest album, Rainbow, her first new release since Warrior in 2012. Her hiatus was due largely to her civil lawsuit against her producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald. She filed in October of 2014 that he had sexual and physically abused her. No criminal charges were filed.

Since then, Kesha has continued to fight. A court denied her request to be free from a recording contract with Dr. Luke, and she was so prevented from releasing music outside of said contract.

“Praying,” was released as a single from Rainbow in July. There is no similarities to the old-Kesha who was popular for “Tik Tok” and “We R Who We R.” Instead, “Praying” is a ballad, so powerful that not only was Kesha emotional throughout her performance but so were we.

“When i wrote praying, with ben abraham and ryan lewis, i just felt as if i had gotten a huge weight off of my shoulders,” Kesha tweeted

 

i just want to say that i needed this song in a very real way, im so proud and nervous and overwhelmed to be performing it at the grammys on sunday, and if you need it i hope this song finds you. 💖💖

Rainbow and her performance at the Grammy’s definitely signals a new era for Kesha, and I for one am ready and in full support of it.
