Kesha fights back tears as she accepts Visibility Award

'Die Young' sensation Kesha was given a top honour by the Human Rights Campaign in Nashville over the weekend for using her spotlight to speak out against bullying of LGBT youth.

The HRC presented the songstress with the Visibility Award and during her acceptance speech she fought back tears as she thanked people for being so supportive of her:

"As many of you know I am going through some personal things that have been really intense and hard lately and I just want to say thank you for the support I have received [...] My message today is don't be afraid to speak up against any injustice you experience. Don't let people scare or shame you into changing the things about you that make you unique."

Kesha added: "We can't be afraid to fight for our dignity. These are our basic human rights."

The past month has been turbulent for Kesha as she recently appeared in court to try and get out of her contract with producer Dr. Luke, who she claimed drugged and raped her. Unfortunately, a New York judge refused the motion.
