Lady Gaga To Perform Oscar-Nominated Song At Producers Guild Awards

Lady Gaga is continuing her awards season reign.

The pop star and recent Golden Globe-winning actress will perform her Oscar-nominated song "Til It Happens to You" at Saturday's Producers Guild Awards in Los Angeles, the organization announced on Thursday.

Co-penned by Gaga and prolific songwriter Diane Warren, the tune is featured in director Kirby Dick's campus assault documentary "The Hunting Ground," which will be honored with the PGA's Stanley Kramer Award for promoting social awareness.

In a press statement, Producers Guild co-chairs Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd called Gaga "one of the most exciting performers working today" and also championed her work outside of music.  

"We admire and appreciate Lady Gaga's commitment as an outspoken advocate for those whose voices often go unheard," they said. "In her activism, she truly embodies the spirit of Stanley Kramer, and we are doubly honored to have her join us in honoring 'The Hunting Ground' in his name."

Warren, who has eight Academy Award nods to her name, recently shared the inspiration behind "Til It Happens To You" on Twitter. 

Gaga's already had some practice playing the song live ahead of taking the PGA stage. 

She first performed "Til It Happens To You" at Billboard’s Women in Music Event in December 2015 — a performance which was noted for the emotional and inspiring speech she gave to the audience, which included her own friends and family.
