Lady Gaga cut down the house at Billboard’s annual Women in Music occasion in New York last Friday with a grasping execution of her tribute tune to casualties of rape, “Till It Happens to You.”
Gaga co-composed the melody with lyricist Diane Warren for a rape narrative The Hunting Ground, which debuted at Sundance earlier in the year.
The melody was performed by Gaga on an amazing piano, joined by an eight-piece string area from the wings.
Getting engaged to Taylor Kinney, performing at the Oscars and featuring in season five of American Horror Story, the 29-year-old pop star was just named 2015’s Woman of the Year by Billboard.
As per the magazine, Gaga was picked taking into account her “industry authority, masterfulness, magnanimity, creative commitment to music, and motivation to millions.”
The grateful artist took to twitter to celebrate with a lot of emojis and to express gratitude toward Billboard for the honor.
