Long before the #MeToo movement started making waves, Kesha was undergoing a very public legal battle with her former producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, whom she alleged drugged and sexually assaulted her, in addition to a number of other horrifying claims. But after years of musical silence, largely due to factors included in her legal cases, the artist, who has been very outspoken about her struggles with mental health,  released her song “Praying” to finally share her truth. And her emotion-filled words lit up the Grammys stage last night.

At the awards show, she dedicated the song to all women who are survivors of assault. And, with the help of an angelic-looking cast of superstars beside her wearing all white—including Cyndi Lauper, Andra Day, Camila Cabello, Bebe Rexha, Julia Michaels, and members of the Resistance Revival Chorus—she probably didn’t leave a single dry eye in the audience.

“When I wrote “Praying,” with Ben Abraham and Ryan Lewis, I just felt as if I had gotten a huge weight off of my shoulders. It felt like an emotional raw victory for myself, one step closer to healing. I never could have known what would’ve happened these past few years.” —Kesha

“When I wrote “Praying,” with Ben Abraham and Ryan Lewis, I just felt as if I had gotten a huge weight off of my shoulders,” Kesha tweeted before the show. “It felt like an emotional raw victory for myself, one step closer to healing. I never could have known what would’ve happened these past few years.”

There are plenty of ways to raise your voice about your own struggles—even if that’s simply through a hashtag—and Kesha’s performance proved that for her, Time’ s (definitely) Up. Watch the full performance below:

A poll shows that the #MeToo movement might already be helping women. Also, this mantra will light a fiery sense of empowerment inside of you.
