This will make you want to go to a Demi Lovato concert

Fans who go to a Demi Lovato show on her next tour will get more than just music therapy. Lovato is partnering with CAST Centers, an organization that promotes mental health and wellness, to provide inspirational speeches and group therapy to concertgoers during her 2018 tour, and honestly, it's genius.

"It's basically like a therapy session before the concerts and we have speakers from all over and we're also helping out with different charities from around the country," Lovato said on Good Morning America this week. "So it'll be an incredible, very moving and inspiring experience."

She continued, "I want to do this because one, it was such an incredible experience the last time we did this on tour. I've actually met people that go to CAST because they went to CAST on tours and realized they needed to get sober or they needed to better themselves in some other way, and it's changed lives and I want to be able to do that again. It's a part of my whole... life, about giving back and I think it's really important that I continue to do this while I'm on tour."
