Pop star Lady Gaga and US vice president Joe Biden are teaming up in Las Vegas for an event aimed at raising awareness about sexual assault.

The singer and the politician will hold a rally at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, on April 7. The White House said they will speak about the need to prevent sexual assault on college campuses.

The two teamed up at the Academy Awards in February. Mr Biden was given a standing ovation when he introduced the singer, who performed her Oscar-nominated song Til It Happens to You, which is about sexual assault on campuses.

In addition to the Las Vegas rally, Mr Biden is holding events at universities in Pennsylvania and Colorado during a week-long focus on preventing sexual assault.
