Lady Gaga’s Powerful ‘The Hunting Ground’ Theme “Till It Happens To You” Surfaces Online: Listen
Last month, Lady Gaga announced that she’d recorded a theme song for Kirby Dick‘s documentary The Hunting Ground, which focuses on rape culture across colleges around the country. The song, called “Till It Happens To You,” was written alongside Diane Warren, who was recently nominated for Rita Ora‘s “Grateful” at this year’s 2015 Academy Awards ceremony.
The movie had its first screening last night, and of course, someone in the audience managed to record the full song.
“Till you’re standing in my shoes, I don’t want to hear a thing from you,” Gaga emotionally declares across the piano and string-led power ballad. Like her Oscars performance, the new song showcases Gaga’s powerful vocal skills, and the message will no doubt hit home for many.
Listen to the recording of “Till It Happens To You” below, and let us know what you think of Gaga’s contribution in the comments.
