Katy Perry’s Super Bowl Halftime Show played out like a technicolor dream gone batsh*t crazy. (Have you gotten your #dancingshark tattoo yet?) However, it looks as though she’ll be switching things up rather drastically for her upcoming Grammy performance this Sunday.

Instead of throwing a pop party on-stage with upbeat PRISM hits like “Roar” and “Dark Horse”, Perry is opting for a more solemn affair by singing the piano-led album closer, “By the Grace of God”. And that’s not all: She’s set to perform the ballad with Brooke Axtell, a domestic abuse survivor and activist who is currently working to end sex-trafficking. Per People:

Perry is scheduled to take the stage with domestic violence survivor Brooke Axtell, who will perform a written-word piece while the “Roar” singer performs her touching ballad “By the Grace of God”.

“It’s an honor to collaborate with Katy in this way. She has been very devoted to various aspects of female empowerment,” Axtell, 34, tells PEOPLE. “It’s going to bring a lot of encouragement and freedom to those who hear my story and know that they are not alone in this.”

The Grammy Awards air on CBS this Sunday, February 8th at 8pm EST.
