Kesha officiates a same-sex wedding in the official music video for "I Need A Woman to Love." The song is part of the Universal Love album.

The over five-minute clip opens with Kesha sharing her thoughts about love. The musician sings some lines to her song. She also poses in front of the camera.

A same-sex couple is also featured in the music video. They talk about love while planning their wedding.

Almost two minutes into the clip, Kesha reveals that she is in Las Vegas to officiate the couple's wedding. She said that it was her third time to wed same-sex couples.

The couple also gushes over Kesha as they recount what it was like meeting her at an LGBTQ protest in 2015. Kesha wore a rainbow attire at that time to show her support to the community.

Kesha, 31, also gets emotional while talking about meeting the same-sex couple. She says that she has never seen them before, but they have changed her life for the better.

The singer wed the couple on March 26.

'Universal Love' Album

The Universal Love album also features collaborations with St. Vincent, Bob Dylan, Valerie June, Ben Gibbard, and Kele Okereke.

Other songs in the album are "He's Funny That Way," "And Then She Kissed Me," "My Guy," "Mad About the Girl," and "And I Love Him."

Universal Love was funded by MGM Resorts International, and the tracks featured in the album are intended to be used as wedding songs for same-sex couples.

Jim Murren, the chief executive of MGM, said that gay weddings make up 20 to 30 percent of the ceremonies in Las Vegas.

"If you look at the history of pop music, love songs have predominantly come from one heterosexual perspective. If we view music as something that brings people together, shouldn't these popular songs be open to everyone?" said Murren.

Kesha Opens Up About Love

In 2013, Kesha refused to reveal whether she is straight, gay, or bisexual. The "Praying" singer also said that she is not a fan of labels, and she simply likes certain people regardless of their gender.

"I don't just love men. I love people. It's not about a gender. It's just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you're with," said Kesha.

The singer is currently dating Brad Ashenfelter.
