Lady Gaga tries to make the worst seem better to a group of homeless LGBT young people.
Thanksgiving is a holiday to remind us to show thanks and appreciation for the good (and even the bad) moments, people and things in our lives. Some don’t have much of any of these, particularly a group of young people at the Ali Forney Center in Brooklyn, but Mother Monster brought her wisdom and gift of song to the center on Black Friday, which provides “LGBTQ young people housing and a continuum of supportive services to help them thrive and prepare them for independent living.”
As iHeartRadio points out, Gaga’s philanthropic efforts extend to the “Born This Way Foundation” she constructed in 2011 “to empower youth and inspire bravery.”
Here’s a video of Gaga explaining the helpers high, and perform an acoustic rendition of “Million Reasons.”
“I’m here today not because I had to excruciatingly pull time out of my schedule to come be here,” she told them. “I’m here because I want to be here, and I’m here because I want this to affect other people around the world, and to remind them that when they are kind, it not only makes the other person feel good, but it makes me feel good too.”
