LADY GAGA AND THE SURVIVORS

The Oscars have long been a platform for social activism.

The 88th Academy Awards certainly saw its fair share of advocacy, but one performance in particular brought some of Hollywood’s biggest names to tears on Sunday, February 28.

The “Oscar” people still haven’t released the official video of Lady Gaga’s performance at the 2016 Oscars. You only get snippets of it or you need to watch it in outlets that have been allowed to use it, I guess.

Nevertheless, ABC News reported on it and explains so much more about the relevance and importance of the song and the documentary it was written for.

“THE HUNTING GROUND”

I think the accompanying video says it all.

I will leave you with it.

Lady Gaga was joined by victims of sexual assault for a stirring performance of her Oscar-nominated song “Til It Happens to You,” from the documentary “The Hunting Ground.”

The song was introduced by Vice President Joe Biden, who implored the audience to take a pledge at ItsOnUs.org to “change the culture, so no abused woman or man should ever have to ask themselves what did I do.”

Gaga then appeared alone on stage, seated behind a white piano.

Singing powerfully the words, “til it happens to you, you don’t know how it feels,” she was joined by a dozens of abuse survivors. After standing in the shadows, they joined her on stage at the song’s climax. On each of their forearms was written different words, including “unbreakable” and “survivor.” Together they joined hands with the singer as the audience rose to their feet, clearly moved by Gaga’s performance.

Nominee Rachel McAdams wiped away tears, as Gaga’s co-writer, eight-time nominee Diane Warren, looked blown away.

    • Me too! I find this a sad reality, getting worse. The performance was such a powerful one. I wondered about Gaga’s attitude as she sang. Now I know. And I saw Diane Warren’s reaction … Wow!! More than proud! Hugs!!
