All-star-singer Kesha will lead a fundraiser sponsored by LGBTI organization Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh. The event was originally set in motion to urge people to vote in the upcoming US elections, but attention will now be turned toward raising much-needed funds for the families and victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting. Proceeds will particularly benefit the Jewish Federation’s Our Victims of Terror Fund.
“My heart is filled with sadness following the horrible events this past weekend in Pittsburgh. I’m so sorry for the pain and suffering that so many are going through,” Kesha wrote. “I will still be coming to Pittsburgh this Saturday to play my show and deliver as much peace and positivity as I can. And I want you—anyone who feels up to it—to come and celebrate Pride with me. Let’s show the world that there is only love and always hope in Pittsburgh. Let’s show the world that there is only love and always hope in Pittsburgh.”
The event will take place on November 3.
