Lady Gaga's talent needs no introduction. She shut the naysayers up when she released The Cherrytree Sessions, an acoustic EP, in 2009, proving the voice behind pop masterpieces, like "Poker Face," was all hers—no auto-tune necessary. Still, though, there's something special whenever an artist of Gaga's caliber does something without a backing track. It's a little reminder that good things truly exist within the sugary, calculated world of pop music. Most recently, Lady Gaga gave such a reminder.

Gaga stopped by Casa Hogar de Cabo San Lucas A.C., a foster home for boys, while on vacation in Mexico. There, she performed a stripped-down version of her 2011 hit "Born This Way." Facebook user Omar Venegas captured the moment on camera, which is now available to share with the world.

This is just another recent example of Lady Gaga using her platform to do good and spread compassion. Following the massacre in Orlando, Florida, Lady Gaga spoke at a rally in L.A. where she read the names of the victims aloud. Later in June, she sat down with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama for a dialogue on self-esteem, peace, and kindness. "Caring for others and having compassion," she said, "it gives you a sense of purpose."
