Selena Gomez hosted the 2017 “WE Day Special,” which was broadcast on Friday. During the one-hour program, the singer-actress made a series of inspiring speeches. Watch the video below!

Gomez, hosting for the third year in a row, officially kicked off the star-studded event after a performance from Alessia Cara. Taking the stage to cheers, she told the youth in attendance, “This show is about inspiration and positive ideas for change. So if you want to roll up your sleeves and make a difference, you’ve come to the right place.”

After remarks from the founders of “WE Day,” who spoke about the charity’s importance, Gomez went on to say, “We hear a lot about our differences, the things that divide us. But when I look around this room, I see so much solidarity, and I know that across America there are people that feel the same… Together, let’s unite in service.”

Celebrity guests like Demi Lovato, DJ Khaled and Laurie Hernandez expressed similar messages during the show. Towards the end of the broadcast, Gomez said, “One of the best pieces of advice that I was ever given is that you are who you surround yourself with. And that’s why I come to WE Day, and why I have been coming to WE Day for so many years. This positive, hopeful energy is a life force.”

“Everyone that we met tonight and every one of you inspire me to better every single day, to be present, to be mindful, to be compassionate, to be human. So, thank you so, so much,” Gomez said. And to close the event, she urged, “America, use this inspiration to take action. The show may be over, but the journey is just beginning. Remember we are so much stronger together.”

While this year’s “WE Day” event actually took place in April, it was revealed last month that highlights would air on CBS with Gomez as the host. She said in a statement at the time, “My first WE Day experience was 3 years ago and to say I was impressed is an understatement. The electricity of an arena full of thousands of young people who are making real change in the world is like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I am grateful to be a part of such a supportive community and hope I can inspire the kids at WE Day just as they continue to inspire me.”

Gomez also brought some laughs by teaming up with Miss Piggy for a few segments backstage. Check out the videos below!
