Hillary Clinton just made a rare public appearance.
The former Democratic nominee surprised everyone when she showed up at the annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York Tuesday night. It was the second time Clinton has been seen in public since she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump.
While at the event, Clinton introduced Katy Perry, who was receiving the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award.
“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,” she continued.
“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 added.
“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.” (RELATED: People Can’t Stop Talking About How Rough Hillary Clinton Looked In Her First Public Appearance)
