Kesha became an unlikely voice for the Me Too moment when she put her career on pause and stood up against her producer and alleged abuser Dr. Luke. Though her legal troubles are still pending, the star took the stage at the 2018 Grammy Awards to deliver a powerful performance of “Praying.”

“Praying,” the singer’s first song in five years, has become an anthem for victims of abuse with lyrics like “after everything you’ve done, I can thank you for how strong I have become.” The performance had a star-studded lineup of backup singers including Cyndi Lauper, Andra Day, and Camilla Cabello, who each embraced the teary-eyed Rainbow singer in support.
