The singer has eight consecutive Top 10 hits, including four No. 1 singles: "TiK ToK,” "Your Love Is My Drug,” "We R Who We R” and “Timber,” a multi-platinum award-winning collaboration with Pitbull.  As a song-writer, Kesha penned all of her own music, as well as songs for artists including Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, The Veronicas and Miley Cyrus.

She is an animal rights crusader as the Humane Society International’s first Global Ambassador and a passionate advocate for equality, being honored with the 2016 Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award.  Kesha has branched out into TV, film, and fashion, becoming a global cultural icon and winning Billboard Magazine's 2016 Trailblazer Award.
