Another amazing moment came at the Democratic National Convention on July 27, when Kesha took the stage to perform a great set. The singer also took a moment from rocking out to address gun control in a powerful speech. Watch the epic moment here!
Wow, Kesha, 29, totally wowed us with her emotional speech, where she talked about her own struggles and national issues! “If you’re a human being, you go through pain and you go through hurt,” she said on stage at a DNC event hosted by gun violence victim Gabby Giffords, 46, in Philadelphia. “And every single one of us knows that emotion.”
The singer also spoke candidly about her own hurt, referencing her highly publicized court battle with music producer, Dr. Luke, 42, and Sony. “I don’t know if you guys know what I am going through,’ she addressed the crowd. “I’m going through a lawsuit. It’s f***ing horrible.” And while the crowd screamed in support of the “We R Who We R” singer, she also used her platform to talk about the issue o gun control and the recent shootings.
“And we as a nation can’t control who feels hurt, and who we can’t control feels pain. And we can’t control what you do with the hurt, and the pain, and the anger. We can’t control every single person and know how they’re going to deal with things, and know if they’re going to pick up a weapon,” she continued, referencing the recents attacks at the Orlando nightclub and Dallas. “But what we can control is who we give the f***ing weapons to.” Wow!
Kesha also took to Instagram to elaborate on her concerns for the issue. “We cannot ignore all of the mass shootings and daily lives lost to the lack of gun control in America,” she wrote. “People keep throwing their hands up in defeat about this issue, but it’s not an option anymore.” While the “Tik Tok” singer’s speech and message on social media were brief, the fact that she used her voice to talk about such an important issue will hopefully inspire others to follow in her footsteps!
