Lady Gaga is publishing an anthology of personal stories by young people called Channel Kindness, which is scheduled for release on Sept. 2, 2020.

The collection, which also features messages of empowerment from the pop star, is all about sharing the power of kindness.

"Channel Kindness is an embodiment of the everyday acts of kindness that uplift communities and instill a sense of hope in each of us. If it inspires one act of kindness, then we've accomplished our mission," said Lady Gaga in a press release.

Stories include a young writer who discovered the power of self-love after being bullied at school, someone who started a movement to lift the stigma around mental health and another who created safe spaces for LGBTQ youth.

The book is part of Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation, which she co-founded in 2012 with her mother Cynthia Germanotta.

Lady Gaga has won 11 Grammy Awards, as well as two Golden Globes and an Academy Award. She recently released the single Stupid Love, which will be on her sixth album Chromatica.
