Kesha attends the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival at T-Mobile Arena on Sept. 23, 2017 in Las Vegas.

Kesha knows what it feels like to need a hand. The singer, who bounced back this year from a serious personal and professional dip during a lengthy public legal battle against her former mentor/producer Dr. Luke, was able to get back on her feet with a little help from her friends and now she's honoring an organization that reaches out to fellow musicians who need a leg up. 

"I care so much about music. Great to see that music cares back," the "Woman" singer tweeted on Tuesday (Jan. 23) afternoon in a post honoring the MusiCares organization, which offers a safety net of financial, medical or personal services to music people in need. "Thank you for everything that you do @RecordingAcad and @MusiCares."

The note was accompanied by a minute-long video cued to her song "Praying," which features the organization's credo and some testimonials from those who it has helped. "It's so nice to know that there is an organization like this out there for artists when we need it. Because of MusiCares, I have a roof over my head this month," reads one. "Thank you for helping this alcoholic break free from the prison of the disease of alcoholism." 

MusiCares will hold its annual gala on Friday (Jan. 26) at New York's Radio City Music Hall honoring Fleetwood Mac, the first-ever band to receive their Person of the Year tribute. President Bill Clinton will present the honor and the evening will feature performances from Harry Styles, Brandi Carlile, Haim, Imagine Dragons, Jared Leto, Juanes, Keith Urban, Portugal. The Man, Miley Cyrus, Lorde and Little Big Town, among others.
