Music Beats Cancer Kesha

Kesha Rose Sebert is a famous American singer, rapper, and songwriter. Her fans, and basically everyone else who has heard of her, know her as Ke$ha. Her music is a mix of pop, electropop, as well as some dance- and synth-pop, and hip hop.

Kesha started her career when she was only 18 years old, back in 2005. It took her a while to reach some fame. And in 2009, it finally happened. That was when she appeared in Flo Rida’s hit single Right Round. Further successes quickly followed, and it wasn’t long before she became famous throughout the country and soon, the world. 

Today, she has ten top-ten singles from the US Billboard Hot 100, and a few joint hits with Flo Rida and Pitbull. Two of her albums, Animal from 2010 and Rainbow from 2017, reached the number one spot on US Billboard 200. Tik Tok, a famous song of hers, was at one point the best-selling digital single in the history of the world, with over 25 million units sold worldwide by the end of 2019. It’s also important to mention that she has sold more than 134 million records worldwide and has one MTV Award. 

All of this massive success has enabled Kesha to work hard to improve the world, and the proof lies in the fact that she helps a wide variety of causes and has achieved a lot in her 30+ years on planet Earth.

As early as 2013, she was recognized for her efforts to help the animal world by raising awareness. The Humane Society of the United States rewarded her with the Wyler Award. She hasn’t stopped talking about animal issues ever since. She called the EU to ban the sale of cosmetics that are made through animal tests, and she supported several global movements that work to band the trade of shark fins. Additionally, she called for the end of baby seal slaughter in Canada and tried to bring awareness to the hardships of street dogs in the US.

However, animal causes are the only thing she advocates. She also does what she can to support children and their rights, especially when it comes to bullying. She also supports human and women rights as well as the rights of the LGBT community. In the end, she is known to donate and raise awareness for issues concerning health, especially depression and suicide. 

Throughout her life, she has worked with a number of organizations, including Amnesty International, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Musicians on Call, American Foundation for AIDS Research, and many more. 

In 2014, she and a bunch of other musicians managed to raise more than $52 million through a telethon – all for charity. In the same year, Kesha also performed at the Pathway to the Cure for Breast Cancer fundraiser event in order to raise funds to fight this terrible disease. 

Naturally, these are but a few examples of what Kesha does with his fame and money. We can only say that we hope that she will continue to do the same in the future. We can never have enough agents of positive change like Kesha in the world!
