The 'Back to You' singer took the stage at the WE Day celebration to talk about how herpersonal health struggles taught her how to use her platform for good. The annual event, which took place on April 19 of this year at the Los Angeles Forum, promotes youth empowerment all over the world. The special, hosted by John Stamos, aired on Friday and featured a special moment with Gomez as she introduced 8-year-old Nellie Mainor, who suffers from a rare kidney disease.
'You are focusing on making the world a more hopeful place and you encourage me and all of my friends to do the same,' Gomez began, before opening up about her kidney transplant. 'As maybe some of you know, I had a kidney transplant this year and so many people from across the country reached out and they offered their support. And others told me how hearing my story helped them find their own courage and helped other people want to get involved and donate. They reminded me how lucky I am to have a platform where I can share with you guys and I can pay the love forward.'
