Lady Gaga brought the Academy Awards to a halt with an amazing performance of ‘Til It Happens To You‘ from the Oscar nominated documentary, ‘The Hunting Ground’.
The film tackles the topic of sexual assault on college campuses. The performance was introduced by Vice President Joe Biden – who is an advocate for women’s rights.
“Too many women and men on and off of college campuses are still victims of abuse. Take the pledge: I will intervene in situations where consent has not or cannot be given. We must, and we can, change the culture.”
Gaga was visibly emotional while performing the song alongside survivors of sexual assault. Sadly, the song did not win the Oscar but the performance brought the Dolby Theatre to its feet, with several members of the audience left in tears.
