Selena Gomez revealed back in September she received a kidney transplant from her best friend, Francia Raisa.
The friends have since spoken openly about the surgery on several occasions, including in an emotional interview with TODAY's Savannah Guthrie.
On Thursday night (11/30), Sel G dedicated her Woman of the Year trophy to Francia at the Billboard Women Of The Year awards.
"To be honest, I think Francia should be getting this award, because she saved my life," Selena said, choking back tears. "Honestly, I couldn’t be more grateful for the position that I’ve been given in my career from 7 to 14 to now. I feel like for me, with my music, I’ve been able to illustrate the things that I want. And I’m reminded by a team of people who believe in me even when I don’t myself, and I couldn’t be luckier."
