Pop star Kesha is gearing up to make her official return to the stage, and she will be doing so at the 9th Annual Delete Blood Cancer Gala in New York City. The event, which takes place on April 16th at Cipriani Wall Street, will be hosted by Randy Jackson and event co-founder Katharina Harf. Along with Kesha’s performance, there will be a bone marrow drive in an effort to find matches for those who may be in need of a donation to fight a disease. The organization is also marketing a “miracle moment’ in which a patient will be introduced to the bone marrow donor who saved their life.
Kesha has expressed her excitement and honor at being asked to perform, and she paid tribute to the event and its supporters. In a press release related to the event, Kesha has been quoted as saying “everyone who is a part of this evening is so inspiring and so fortunate to be part of it.”
In February, it was announced that Kesha would also be taking the stage at Auburn University’s Auburn Airwaves concert on April 18th. Kesha will be sharing the stage with rapper Nelly, and the tickets will be free to students. The event is being billed as a sort of festival, and students have expressed their excitement for the event. Concert promoters are expecting a large turnout for the event as they are estimating approximately 25,000-30,000 attendants. This is a huge increase from the year before, when 5,000 students attended the concert.
Since she hasn’t released an album since the 2012 Warrior, it is unclear if Kesha will be performing new music at the events. These performances will be Kesha’s first time onstage since April of 2014, when she hopped onstage at the Best Fest, which celebrated Tom Petty’s musical achievements. At the event, she performed a cover of Petty’s iconic “Free Fallin.’”
Recently, Kesha let fans know that she has been working hard in the studio, but there is no official news about an upcoming release yet. The musician remained pretty tight-lipped regarding the music, claiming that she had been recording across a variety of genres including country. When asked what she would be singing about on the tracks, Kesha coyly replied that she would be singing about “stuff.” Towards the end of 2014, she teased fans by releasing a song called “Lover” on her YouTube account, but recently, the single has been taken down. This may mean that the song will be included on an upcoming release, but nothing is official yet.
