Watch: Kesha Previews New Documentary 'Rainbow — The Film'
It's been almost a year since Kesha released her breathtaking comeback album, Rainbow. A work of sheer perseverance, strength and resilience, the journey to get that album made was no small feat. It's an accomplishment that deserves to be celebrated time and time again. On Aug. 10, the GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter will do just that by commemorating the one-year anniversary of the album with the documentary, Rainbow — The Film.
Rainbow — The Film, which was directed by Kesha, her brother Lagan Sebert and Kevin Hayden, will present "psychedelic vignettes" that chronicle the making of her 2017 LP. Through never-before-seen film footage, viewers gain insight into Kesha's personal life and how she overcame impossible hurdle after hurdle to create a beautiful album that showcases self-love, courage and the power of music to heal.
"Making Rainbow the album was such a therapeutic process and given the opportunity to turn it into a three-dimensional piece of art has helped me find even deeper healing and catharsis," Kesha said in a statement. "I hope this film inspires others to never give up even if you feel full of hurt or lost, because after the storm comes a rainbow. Depression, anxiety and mental illness are things we all need to talk about more, and there is no shame in asking for help. Making the decision to work on yourself is the bravest thing you can do. I hope this film helps bring light and love to everyone."
