Hillary Clinton surprises Katy Perry at UNICEF Snowflake Ball


After keeping a low profile for the past three weeks, Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance at UNICEF's 12th annual Snowflake Ball on Tuesday night — and no one was happier to see her than honoree, Katy Perry.

While President-elect Donald Trump was dining with Reince Priebus and Mitt Romney at Jean Georges, a three-Michelin star New York City restaurant inside his Trump International Hotel, Clinton was across town at the fundraising gala.

Even "Roar" singer and outspoken Clinton suporter Perry (pictured above with Pamela Fiori and Caryl Stern) was surprised when Hillary took to the stage to present her with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award, The Hill reported.

"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.

"We need champions like Katy now more than ever," she continued. "Her passion, her energy and, yes, her voice, louder than a lion."

Perry went so far as to strip naked to show her support of Clinton in September as part of her campaign to get people to go out and vote.

She also performed at the Democratic National Convention in July.
