While much of the show consists of Gaga singing jazz standards like “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing),” “Luck Be a Lady,” “Steppin’ Out With My Baby,” and “The Best Is Yet to Come,” she also sang jazzed up versions of some of her biggest hits, and that includes the queer anthem “Born This Way,” which she dedicated to a specific group in the LGBTQ+ community.
In a video captured at the concert, Gaga is seen sitting at her piano in a gorgeous pink gown and heels.
“I’ve got something to say about trans rights in this country,” Gaga said before starting to play opening piano chords for “Born This Way.” “When you’ve got something to say, you’ve got to speak up, right?”
When she sang the line “there’s nothing wrong with loving who you are, she said ‘cause he made you perfect babe,’” she turned to the audience, directing them to sing along to the lyrics.
From there, Gaga continued the powerful, piano and vocals version of the song, showing us how much of an icon she will always be.
“And you know, sometimes you hear people say things like, ‘I don’t know what to say.’ Just listen! Don’t say nothin’. Listen to the stories of real people’s lives,” she added.
Gaga will always be the queen — and this is exactly why.
