Music Video: Kesha “I Need A Woman”

Last week I reported on the new collection of re-gendered songs – Universal Love – recorded by some of the biggest names in the music industry and produced by longtime LGBT ally MGM Resorts.

From the press release:

The album includes boundary-changing songs from some of today’s most-beloved artists. Bob Dylan, one of the most influential and successful recording artists in American history, is among the visionary artists participating in this unprecedented project. Dylan re-recorded “She’s Funny That Way” as “He’s Funny That Way.” The album features five additional stellar artists whose involvement is a testament to the urgency of equality in entertainment: Kesha (“I Need a Woman to Love Me”), St. Vincent (“And Then She Kissed Me”), Benjamin Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie (“And I Love Him”), Kele Okereke of Bloc Party (“My Guy”), and Valerie June (“Mad About The Girl”).

Phyllis James, MGM Resorts’ Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer, said, “We believe projects like this will help all of us reach a point where seeing the world through the lens of people who happen to be different from us becomes natural and commonplace. It is an immense honor for MGM Resorts to spearhead this inspirational project which celebrates LGBTQ dimensions of the universal emotion of love.”

Today we get the music video for Kesha’s contribution to the project “I Need a Woman.”

The video was shot on location in my town of Las Vegas at The Bellagio.

The music video not only features Kesha’s take on the song, but she also officiates the wedding of lesbian couple Lindsey and Dani.

The nuptials took place on March 26th, the anniversary of the first U.S. same sex marriage license.

This is pretty awesome. Watch below.
