Lady Gaga: Til It Happens To You - Live from the 88th Annual Academy Awards (LadyGagaVEVO)

Lady Gaga invited dozens of survivors of sexual abuse to stand in solidarity onstage with her at the Oscars on Sunday night. The emotional performance of "Til It Happens to You," introduced by Vice President Joe Biden, elicited tears from Kate Winslet, hugs from Brie Larson, and accolades on social media by everyone from Kesha to the United Nations.

The concert has also inspired women to come forward and make public their own stories of surviving sexual assault. After Gaga's performance, actor and model Jaime King thanked the pop star, tweeting to her that she "finally felt a true healing from years of abuse as a minor in the industry. Time to be brave."

On Monday, King elaborated in an Instagram post in which she revealed that her abuse began at the age of 12. "It's a night of celebration, of change, of not being ashamed of your race, creed, color, situation, circumstances and environment, or past," King wrote on Instagram. "Now I am free, somewhat."
