  • As the New York State Supreme Court prepares to decide the future of pop star Kesha, she appeared on a YouTube fan account to reach out to her supporters.

    “I love you guys, more than you will ever know,” she said. “It’s mind-blowing. I can’t put out new music, but I can sing a little, something of someone else’s songs or something that exists. So, what should I sing?”

    After a moment, she settled on a slow and moving a cappella version of “Amazing Grace.”

    We told you a while back that Kesha’s career came to a standstill after she accused her producer, Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottweld, of a decade of physical and verbal abuse. Allegedly, he gave her drugs and sexually assaulted her, induced her to drop out of high school, denied her meaningful profits from her work and was abusive towards her and other women.

    Now her career may be over for good unless the courts allow her to sign with another label without Dr. Luke or his Kemosabe Records interfering.

    On January 26, Kesha will find out if the courts will allow her to make music again. More than 100,000 fans have signed a petition for Sony to save Kesha’s career, and they’re calling for a protest on the steps of the courthouse. Our host Ava Gordy has more:
