Watch Lady Gaga Slay 'Born This Way' A Capella At A Mexican Orphanage

Shivers, meet spine.

This might be her most powerful performance yet.

Lady Gaga took a no-frills approach to her acceptance anthem “Born This Way” during a visit to a Mexican orphanage over the weekend.

In the clip, Gaga ― who surprised the boys of Casa Hogar de Cabo San Lucas with gifts and school supplies ― also treated one child, Christian, to a song at his request. Kneeling on the floor, a stripped down Gaga belted out lyrics like, “There’s nothing wrong with loving who you are,” in front of perhaps her most captivated audience yet.

Casa Hogar thanked the singer for making the trip to spend time with the boys in a note on Facebook.

“Thank you to Lady Gaga for the surprise visit,” the post read. “She shared a healthy dinner for the children and brought backpacks and school supplies for each of the boys. She impressed children and staff with her beauty and humility.”

The “Til It Happens to You” singer shared some photos and videos (she skateboards!) of her own on social media from the trip, encouraging her many little monsters to donate to the organization.

🤘🏼what an awesome day with some truly awesome kids
