Kesha says she can’t sing new songs, so she shares a dramatic cover of “Amazing Grace” instead.
Tuesday, Jan. 26 is a big day for Kesha. Her fans are organizing a protest outside the courthouse in New York City where she’ll appear before a judge to hear her fate. If the judge grants her request to dissolve the contract she’s bound by Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records, she’s free to release new music. However, if a judge denies the motion, Kesha will remain stuck in musical prison and must drop future tunes under her alleged sexual abuser’s guidance until she’s completed three more studio albums.
Kesha posted a message to fans on Instagram last week about her fragile state of mind. “the universe is speaking to me today,” she says. “I am filled with so much anxiety and hope and nerves and doubt and all my emotions are going crazy. if u pray, I could use one this week. I find out the fate of my career Tuesday….”
Over the weekend, she shared a video message singing “Amazing Grace” because “I can’t put out new music, but I can sing a little something of someone else’s songs,” she says.
The video also promotes the Free Kesha campaign and encourages viewers to attend the protest.
Kesha recently performed under the guise named Yeast Infection and began filming a movie, but we imagine no project could distract Kesha enough to fill the void.
