Lady Gaga's upcoming tour dates will be accompanied by a bus offering information about anti-bullying and suicide prevention services, The Associated Press reports. The Born This Way Bus Tour, which will tailgate before each performance, is a mobile extension of Gaga's Born This Way Foundation.

Each stop on the tour will allow 13- to 25-year-olds to learn about mental health resources nearby, and even non-Little Monsters are welcome – hopping on the "Born Brave" bus does not require a concert ticket.

With services offered by LGBTQ-friendly organizations such as the Trevor Project and Campus Pride, the bus outing will kick off next month alongside the next leg of Lady Gaga's Born This Way Ball Tour.

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
