Selena Gomez finally makes her comeback to the stage. It was already confirmed on Twitter on October 26 that the singer is going to hit the stage at the 2017 American Music Awards which will be held in LA on November 19. She will also perform her brand new song, Wolves.
Her performance will be broadcast on ABC at 20:00 P.M. and it will be her first significant performance since receiving a kidney transplant from her best friend, Francia Raisa.
She shared the transplant news on her Instagram account, adding a picture of herself and Francia lying in hospital beds.
‘I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was lying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of,’ she wrote.
‘So I found that I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.’
Lots of celebrities have shown their support for Selena after she opened up about it.
Kesha (previously known as Ke$ha), Lady GaGa and Selena’s childhood best friend Demi Lovato were among those who applauded her for that.
Kesha posted on Instagram, ‘My heart is with @selenagomez and @ladygaga. We’re all human & need self-care. I hope both these icons heal safe & feel good. Such wonderful role models for being so honest with a very critical world.’
During her recovery, the former Disney star decided to donate over $500,000 for Lupus Research Alliance.
The CEO of the group Kenneth Farber confessed for E! News that Selena had supported the organization in many ways.
‘Selena’s openness and strong emotional connection to her worldwide audience have brought extraordinary awareness to a disease that is typically overlooked,’ he stated.
‘Selena has supported our organization in many ways. Together her appeals have raised almost $500,000 for research funded by Lupus Research Alliance.’ Selena also reunited with her ex, Justin Bieber just recently.
