I must be honest here … I had never heard of Kesha until last night while watching the Grammy Awards …. Ever since that powerful Praying performance I have been binge listening to whatever I could get my hands on. And WOW …. I am impressed.
On July 5th, 2017 Kesha announced via her Instagram account that she would be releasing a single titled “Praying” the following day. It charted successfully at number 6 in Australia selling 140,000 copies being certified 2x Platinum. Her single reached number 22 and 11 in the US and Canada respectively and was subsequently certified Platinum in both territories. “Praying” was released August 11, 2017 as the lead single from her third studio album “Rainbow”. Rainbow debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States and was the subject of universal acclaim from music critics, with several complimenting the feminist angle and uniqueness of the record as well as Kesha's vocal performance and ability to interweave different genres of music on the album.
The album received a nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, marking Kesha's first Grammy nominations along with her Best Pop Solo Performance nod for "Praying". [Click here for lyrics]
