Demi Lovato Will Perform Song She Wrote Days Before OD at Grammys

Demi Lovato‘s upcoming Grammys performance will mark the fulfillment of a promise she made to herself after nearly dying from an overdose … so expect it to be very emotional.

The singer will perform at Sunday’s award show … her first live performance since suffering the OD in July 2018, and TMZ’s learned the song she’s chosen is deeply connected to that scary ordeal.

Our Grammys sources tell us … Demi wrote and recorded the song 4 days before her overdose, and the lyrics will reflect her state of mind during that time in her life.

We’re told it’s a “big ballad style” tune, and Lovato vowed while she was recovering in the hospital for months … it would be the first song she’d perform at a big venue if she ever got the chance again.

Sunday will be that big moment … and she’s taking advantage of her comeback opportunity. Along with performing the track on a huge stage, our sources say she’ll be releasing the single after the show. We’re not sure what the title is yet.
