5 Times Lady Gaga Inspired Us to Give Back

When it comes to getting involved with helping the world, Lady Gaga sure gives us a million reasons.

The Grammy-winning artist curated the One World: Together at Home concert spearheaded by Global Citizen and the World Health Organization to spread awareness regarding the coronavirus pandemic and to highlight frontline healthcare workers. The event also featured performances and cameos from stars Taylor Swift, John Legend, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Billie Eilish and more.

Here are more of her initiatives that proves Lady Gaga is the modern day hero we all need today.

She launched the Born This Way Foundation

Together with mother Cynthia Germanotta in 2012, she started the Born This Way Foundation to create a braver and kinder world.

Her foundation has all kinds of programming which focuses on teens and young adults’ mental health. Some current programs include encouraging fans to do acts of kindness for 21 days and in-person training to teach kids how to handle their own mental health or help a friend who goes through these related problems.

She surprised a fan

One of Gaga’s superfans came to what he thought was a makeover with her new Haus Laboratories in 2019. Little did he know that he was in for a huge surprise when Gaga showed up!

The cosmetology student was then reading an emotional letter addressed to her, saying that he couldn’t talk about his sexuality at school for fear of bullying or violence, but her lyrics in “Born This Way” spoke to him. Only for the singer to pop up behind him a few moments later to meet him in person!

She gave voice to the voiceless

From ”Poker Face” to “Born This Way,” Lady Gaga’s music has always had outspoken messages, but her song and performance of “Til It Happens To You” was one of the most touching ones yet. This ballad tackles abuse and assault, and was featured in The Hunting Ground, a college sexual assault documentary.

The star performed the song in the 2016 Oscars ceremony, and was joined on-stage by survivors of assault – a remarkably powerful and moving moment.

She used her platform to raise mental health awareness

In 2019, Lady Gaga addressed mental health in her acceptance speech when she won a Grammy for A Star is Born, saying that she was so proud being part of a movie that addresses mental health issues for they’re so important. She added that a lot of artists deal with it, and that they’ve got to take care of each other.

She helped raise millions to fight COVID-19

Lady Gaga stepped up and helped raise $35 million to fight back when the coronavirus pandemic hit. Like many other celebrities involved in fighting COVID-19 pandemic, Gaga reached out to corporations, companies and philanthropists over a week to help fund WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Fund which provides more testing resources and helps give healthcare workers PPE.

There are many other things that Lady Gaga has done that proved she’s not only talented but also has a big heart.
