Lady Gaga “Til It Happens to You” Live at the Oscars Video feat. Kevin Kantor!!!!

I didn’t watch The Oscars last night, but I did see Lady Gaga’s powerful performance of “Til It Happens to You” from the campus sexual assault documentary The Hunting Ground. And I was so happy to see poet Kevin Kantor among the survivors that took the Oscar stage with Lady Gaga. Kevin’s own spoken word poem about sexual assault, “People You May Know,” was included on our Muruch.com for RAINN benefit album and he was a great support during our fundraising campaign. Kevin Kantor is an incredibly talented poet (and a very nice, humble man) and his should be a household name.
