During her speech, Kesha held back tears as she thanked her fans and peers for supporting her through this past year.
“This is a huge reminder I can’t give up and I have to keep fighting for my truth and keep fighting for my dreams,” Kesha said.
Before wrapping her speech, Kesha offered this piece of advice to the audience: “If you keep showing up for yourself, you can move mountains … Do not let anyone else take your happiness.”
