Lady Gaga Released the Most Important Video You Will See This Year
The new video titled ‘Til It Happens To You’ written by Diane Warren and Lady Gaga is now available online, the song was written for The Hunting Ground, a documentary about campus sexual violence in the United States that was released last February.
Til It Happens To You is a universal song about any kind of loss in life, highlighting the pain from sexual assault. The song consists of an orchestral production with strings, and an emotional vocal delivery from Gaga who some may say has “been away” lately, but it proves that Gaga is one of the most important voices out there nowadays, it’s not the common song about ‘nothing’ that controls the main stream. Lyrically it asks the listeners to stand in a victim’s position and try to understand the turmoil she goes through.
Gaga tweeted to her followers that her song was made for “people all over the world who suffer from painful life experiences.”
As mentioned on her Vevo official video page, a portion of proceeds from the sale of the song will be donated to organizations helping survivors of sexual assault. Buying, sharing and talking about the song has a real agenda behind it, not just self promoting or gaining virtual “Likes”.
