After her court case loss to Sony Music, Kesha finally has something to celebrate!
Kesha received the Visibility Award at the 21st annual Human Rights Campaign Nashville Equality Dinner at the Renaissance Hotel in Nashville Saturday and gave an inspiring speech.
In her speech she said “I love writing songs and I love making music but this is like the most rewarding part of the entire process for me,” Kesha said in her speech. “I’m going through some personal things that have been really intense and hard lately and I just want to say thank you for any support I’ve received. My mom’s crying – stop crying! stop crying.”
She continued with her heartfelt speech, “It’s really hard to have confidence in yourself and love yourself when the world criticizes you for being yourself,” she said, her voice wavering. And obviously, there’s so many other people who’ve had it so much harder than me. I’ve met many members of the LGBT community and some very, very close friends who have come close to taking their own lives because of the abuse they’ve had to deal with and that is heartbreaking. I don’t want to live in a world where we treat each other like that.”
Kesha is not only a talented singer, but one that is honest and real. One that can speak on real issues, as well as uncomfortable issues by bringing them to the forefront. This is why, she continues to receive respect and admiration from many people including her fans and people within the industry… Good for you Kesha!
