Kesha's fearlessness throughout her career will be honored with the Trailblazer Award at Billboard's upcoming Women in Music.
The "Tik Tok" singer is still embroiled in a never-ending legal spat with producer Dr. Luke, but along the way she's inspired millions of people with her courageous bravery and outspokenness. While Kesha continues work on a new album in collaboration with RCA and Sony imprint Kemosabe Records, she'll accept the feat at Billboard's 11th annual event held Dec. 9 in New York City and airing nationally on Lifetime on Dec. 12.
"By combining artistic fearlessness with unbounded creative energy, Kesha has continually pushed the limits of what was once thought possible in pop music," said Janice Min, co-president and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group. "She's a force on stage, an inspiration in person and a true Trailblazer for millions of music fans around the world."
Other women receiving honors at the event include Madonna, who will be named this year's Woman of the Year. Shania Twain will receive the Icon award, Halsey will receive the Rising Star award, Andra Day will receive the Powerhouse award, Meghan Trainor will receive the Chart Topper award and Maren Morris will receive the Breakthrough Artist award.
