On Tuesday evening, Hillary Clinton spoke at the annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York City. She highlighted the work that UNICEF has done to help children before presenting the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award to singer Katy Perry. Clinton said of Perry, “She is serious about understanding the complex problems we face and pulling people together to solve them. We need champions like Katy now more than ever, her passion, her energy and, yes, her voice, louder than a lion.” Perry, a Clinton supporter during the campaign, was surprised by Clinton’s appearance, and in her acceptance speech, Perry said, “I’ve always had a voice – a singing voice – but I’ve never had a voice like I’ve had before. Hillary has lit that voice inside of me, and that light will never go out, it will continue to get brighter and brighter and brighter.” A clip from the event is below, and a full video from the event will be added when/if available.
