Lady Gaga’s and Diane Warren’s “Till It Happens to You,”is a power ballad and an awakening about the sexual assault epidemic on college campuses. On Saturday night, Kesha performed the Oscar-nominated number at the Humane Society Gala in Los Angeles.

Watch to see the brave and emotional performance that is uniquely Kesha.
