As many of us have been aware over recent years, Kesha has been in a sexual assault lawsuit against her former producer Dr. Luke. While the lawsuit was active, Kesha was unable to perform or record new music. It has been an emotional rollercoaster for Kesha and her fans who have supported her in her claims since day one. The on-going lawsuit was a huge deal, not only because Kesha was unable to record and perform, but because the record label did not want to let her go. It was a long battle, but Kesha made the decision to drop the charges with the sole purpose of moving forward with her career.

Kesha’s first concert after dropping the charges took place in Atlantic City, New Jersey and she played to a sold out crowd. She was still unable to perform music that was recorded under the record label, but she made the best out of the situation with old material and cover songs. It was an emotional time and she continued to thank her fans throughout the entire concert. While I have not followed Kesha closely in recent years, mainly because she has mostly been out of the public eye while dealing with the lawsuit, I think it is incredible the way her fans have stuck by her side.

This goes to show how strong the music community is and how much support the community has for its artists. It would have been all too easy for fans to look the another way and allow Kesha to fight the battle on her own; to move along to the next artist active in the music scene. This, however, is not how the music community operates. They stick together through thick and thick, tough times and the good. Kesha’s fans followed the lawsuit every step of the way and continued to encourage her to stay strong. They waited for her to have her freedom back, and they were there are her first concert to make it as special as they could.

Nothing can break the music bonds that artists and fans share. There are no weaknesses when they all come together, and they are never alone. Have you followed Kesha throughout the lawsuit? What are your thoughts on her fan support system, and sticking with an inactive artist during hard times? Please, comment below!

I am currently enrolled at the University of Nevada, Reno and am working toward a Bachelor of Science in Management. I am also currently employed full-time by an automotive corporation. I have been with the company for four years and have worked strictly in the business office which has led me to seek a career in the business industry. I enjoy working as the backbone of the company, being responsible for the company's finances, ensuring customer satisfaction, and ensuring that business is running smoothly and is in compliance with both corporation and state specific laws, policies, and procedures. Outside of work and school, one of the things I enjoy doing most is attending various concerts and festivals. I have found so much joy in music and wish to share my experiences and interpretations with those who share similar opinions.
