About Conjuring Kesha:
Grammy®-nominated singer songwriter and global pop superstar Kesha has a message for everyone that shares her deep passion for all things supernatural and paranormal: “Let’s go!” Now, in CONJURING KESHA, streaming now on discovery+, she expands her understanding of the universe, journeying deep into the heart of darkness, all while checking off her paranormal bucket list. In the six one-hour episodes, Kesha explores the nation’s biggest mysteries, haunted locations and supernatural phenomena with exciting celebrity guests and experts in the unexplained.
Throughout the season, Kesha dives headfirst into mysteries ranging from demonic activity at Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary with comedian Whitney Cummings to hiking deep into the forests of California’s Mount Shasta in search of Bigfoot with “The Bachelorette” star, Jojo Fletcher. Kesha and former tour mate Betty Who face their fears at a haunted opera hall in Kesha’s home state of Tennessee; and she converts actor and rapper GaTa into a full-blown believer at one of the most haunted mansions on the West Coast. Kesha and legendary supermodel Karen Elson become the first to film inside an active and haunted lodge affiliated with the notorious secret society, the Odd Fellows. She also takes the queen of bounce rap, Big Freedia, on the ultimate ghost hunt at the infamously haunted Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Tennessee.
At every stop, Kesha and her celeb pals are joined by top paranormal experts – like psychics Cindy Kaza and Chip Coffey or Bigfoot researcher Ronny LeBlanc – who help guide them through the incredible paranormal activity they experience.
