Kesha has shared a new video for "Hymn," a song from her latest album Rainbow. The new visuals were revealed on Facebook, along with Kesha's partnership with United We Dream, an advocacy group for undocumented immigrants in the United States who were brought to the country as children. These individuals, also known as DREAMers, are at risk of deportation thanks to the Trump administration's move to end DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), a policy put in place by the Obama administration to stall their removal from the country.
In her statement, Kesha writes that she met United We Dream's co-founder Cristina Jiménez at the Time 100 gala last year. "I am partnering up with United We Dream to shine a light on the organization, and I wanted to encourage anyone and everyone to donate even just a moment of your time to learn about what's going on with DACA, donate a dollar if you feel compelled, or simply be open to learning about what's happening to the people behind the statistics."
At every Kesha concert, "Hymn" is dedicated to DREAMers, she says. "Unfortunately, these young people are immediately at risk of losing their access to higher education, lawful employment, and relief from deportation. As I say in ‘Hymn’, we are all 'Dreamers searching for the truth,' and I hope you will stand with me to fight for the DREAMers."
