Kesha's comeback after accusing producer of rape
Fans of Kesha have not had the chance to see her perform live on stage for the last four months, after her legal battle with her former producer, Dr Luke, was brought to media attention.
But the 29-year-old made a guest appearance on the second day of the music festival Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in California on Saturday (April 16) night.
Kesha joined EDM producer Zedd for a rendition of True Colours, the titular track off his latest album, in front of thousands of festival-goers.
The collaboration had been discussed ever since he tweeted his support for Kesha back in February, expressing his interest to work with her.
Kesha was not the only surprise guest Zedd brought on stage during his set.
He was also joined by musician Aloe Blacc and the lead singer of US indie-pop quartet Echosmith, Sydney Sierota, both of whom he collaborated with on True Colours.
While Kesha did not address the crowd during her four minute-long performance, her appearance gave her fans, who have been voicing their support for her throughout the ordeal with her law suit, hope that she would be back in action soon.
Kesha had filed a law suit against Dr Luke in October 2014, claiming her producer assaulted, raped and drugged her while they were working together from 2005 to 2014.
Earlier this month, New York Judge Shirley Kornreich dismissed her suit, stating that no facts have been presented to support her claims against Dr Luke.
The judge said about Kesha’s allegations: “Her claims of insults about her value as an artist, her looks, and her weight are insufficient to constitute ‘extreme, outrageous conduct intolerable in civil society'."
Kesha’s next performance is set for May at Dylan Fest, a two-night all-star tribute event held in Nashville, Tennessee, in celebration of legendary singer Bob Dylan’s 75th birthday.
