Billboard broke the news today that Selena Gomez will be awarded the 2017 Woman of the Year honor at their annual Women In Music awards gala in November. “Gomez, an award-winning singer, producer and actress, will join an all-star cast of previous Woman of the Year honorees including Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Pink, Katy Perry, Fergie, and Beyoncé.”
Aside from having some incredible music drop this year, she underwent a kidney transplant. She is an incredible role model to her young fans for the strength she has shown.
“Not only is Selena soaring on the charts, but she continuously inspires young women everywhere to be authentic, give back and to not be afraid to use their voice. She is never afraid to speak her mind and has used her platform to advocate for the needs of others. We are thrilled to be able to honor her as our Woman of the Year.”
