Lady Gaga's Oscar-nominated song is different than anything she's done before

Lady Gaga is nominated for her first Oscar for co-writing the song “Til It Happens to You,” which is from the documentary “The Hunting Ground.”

It’s a powerful song raising awareness about sexual assault on college campuses. She says a portion of proceeds from the song will go to charities helping sexual assault survivors.
