Kesha Releasing “Rainbow” Documentary
Kesha is set to debut a new documentary on Apple Music next month. “Rainbow - The Film” is set to drop August 10th, the one-year anniversary of the release of her latest record “Rainbow.”
"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 says. "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.”
She adds, “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."
