At the annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball, Clinton made her second public appearance since losing the general election to President-elect Donald Trump. Clinton presented the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award to Perry, reports The Daily Beast.

“On a personal level, I cannot tell you how delighted I am to be here to help celebrate a global megastar, a social media queen with the most Twitter followers in the world—although she’s getting some competition—and someone whose powerful voice and creative lyrics remind us when you get knocked down to get back up,” Clinton said. “I have seen Katy’s commitment to the causes she believes in firsthand, I’ve gotten to spend time with her and I know how deeply she cares about making our world a better place. 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.”

“Every single child deserves the chance to live up to his or her God-given potential,” Clinton continued. “And for 70 years, UNICEF has protected children’s rights, helped provide food, safety, medical care, education, and created opportunities for tens of millions of boys and girls around the world.”

Perry joked through tears, “Does anyone have a tissue?” Then she said, “Hillary Clinton has lit a voice inside of me, and that light will never go out. It will continue to get brighter and brighter.” The singer thanked Clinton on behalf of the “millions of people who appreciate you, your incredible work and your heart.”
