Nothing can keep Kesha down: On Saturday night, the singer performed an emotional cover of Lady Gaga’s “Til It Happens To You” at the Humane Society Gala in Los Angeles—and the song’s original performer sent her the BEST message of girl-power solidarity Sunday morning.

As the music began, Kesha teared up and had to take a few deep breaths. She said, “I want to dedicate this song to every man, woman, child, [and] animal that has ever been abused.”

The singer was accompanied on the piano by Diane Warren, who co-wrote the Oscar-nominated song with Gaga. The track originally appeared in the documentary The Hunting Ground, which shed light on sexual assault on college campuses. During the song, photos of caged animals were shown on a screen behind Kesha, and, at the end, her performance earned a standing ovation from the audience.

Kesha has received an outpouring of support from the music community in the midst of her legal battle with producer Dr. Luke, who Kesha alleges has sexually, physically, and mentally abused her.

Lady Gaga, who’s been a vocal supporter of Kesha throughout the legal turmoil, sent the singer a super empowering message about her performance on Twitter this morning.

Lady Gaga shared her own story of sexual assault in the past, and at this year’s Oscars, she delivered a moving performance of “Til It Happens To You” alongside other sexual assault survivors.

Kesha recently released “True Colors,” a new collaboration with Zedd. Here’s hoping Kesha continues to let her voice be heard.
