The singer revealed that her first day of rehearsals with a group of survivors was extremely difficult for her, writing on Instagram (below):

“The first day of rehearsal with all the survivors I could barely get myself together. My body was wrecked with inflammation and pain, crying and shaking the whole walk to the stage. The whole night before I did not sleep. The fear of knowing I would finally face that I belonged in that group. I told them I was so sorry I couldn’t be Lady Gaga for them, that I couldn’t even get dressed. I could barely get through the song, couldn’t hit any of the high notes. Hair wet, sloppy tee shirt jeans uggs, tissues.”

She goes on to say, though, that the survivors in the room (some of whom are pictured, above) helped her get through the very difficult moment:

“They all hugged me and told me that it was okay because it was more real this way, that they understood that they were in pain too. They told me they were there for me to support me because they believed this message needed to be heard. Without them I never could have felt strong. They accepted me for me, at my lowest and that was good enough for them, so somehow through the magic of their courage they made it good enough for me too.”

Obviously, a very, very difficult situation turned into something very uplifting for both GaGa and the survivors who have now permanently changed her life.
