Jennifer Lopez received a People's Icon Award at the 2020 E! People's Choice Awards on Sunday, 15 November and it touched her soul. This award means more to Lopez than her words could express – it brought her to tears.
Armie Hammer had the honour of presenting Jennifer with the award. Knowing the undeniable influence Jennifer has had, Armie reminded the crowd and all who were watching of her endless achievements.
"Jennifer Lopez has always looked at the world and thought why not. Why not have a former fly girl rule the box office? Why can't a bona fide movie star dominate the music charts? And why not be a little girl from the Bronx who conquers the fashion and beauty world? And why not become a global icon?”
After a lengthy speech outlining all the amazing things that Jennifer is, he finally got around to handing over the award.
Dressed to impress in a breathtaking Christian Siriano gown, Jennifer took the stage to accept her award. Overcome with emotion after so many beautiful congratulations speeches, Lopez tried to hold back the tears and she expressed her gratitude.
"Helping each other, loving each other, being kind to each other. And the importance of that connection, that human touch and I realise it's what I strive for in everything I do, to reach people, to touch people. I believe that's what we all want, shared experiences, to know that we're not in this alone," the star reflected.
"Your belief and your faith in me motivates me to keep going and sometimes when I'm tired or beaten down like a lot of us have been this year, it's my family, my friends, my babies and my fans, you guys, who have lifted me up when I couldn't lift myself.
"And I'm so grateful to have you, to have that in my life. Thank you. I approach my work and career the same way I approach my life. I lead with love, I feel with my heart and I always try to speak with truth, in telling stories, singing songs and performing, I do so with the purpose of bringing a little happiness, creating beauty and inspiring others to do the same."
It was a truly emotional moment that Lopez will never forget. 2020 has been a hell of a year but it has taught the world so much.
