Pop singer and coach on NBC’s “The Voice” Christina Aguilera received the Humanitarian of the Year Award. She is the global spokeswoman for Yum! Brands’ World Hunger Relief, a global movement and campaign to raise awareness and funds to end hunger.
“I’ve had a lot of great successes and I’ve been fortunate enough to, you know win a few Grammys… But, from my heart, it really means a lot to be recognized for what’s important to me,” the singer said, referencing her desire to connect people all over the world.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to win a few Grammys ... but from my heart it really means a lot to be recognized for what is most important to me,“ she said, tearing up on stage.
“Yes, the stage is a platform for me, and I’m able to have fun with that and play dress up ... but my purpose and what I do with this platform is really important to me.”
