One of the many highlights at the Los Angeles Women's March Saturday was the performance of "Uprising of Love" by Melissa Etheridge and the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles.

After being introduced by Allison Janney, Etheridge took the stage to sustained applause, to which she responded, "Thank you, brothers and sisters and everyone in between." She later noted that some people find the LGBT community scary because of the gender duality they embody.

She told attendees that they're changing the world, but said, "Change starts right here with yourself," pointing to her heart. 

She recalled performing "Uprising of Love" in Russia and said, "Believe me, the people of Russia are feeling like we are. The people of the world are looking to us." She and the chorus then launched into the song. Watch below.
