“This is crazy, this is ridiculous,” said Khalid, 19, as he accepted the trophy. “I’ve got to thank the city of El Paso for standing behind me. This isn’t just for me — this is for the city.” The singer-songwriter also thanked his mother and his fans for their support.
“This is the start of something great,” pledged the musician while accepting his first Moon Person.
Also on Sunday, Khalid joined Logic and Alessia Cara for a moving performance of “1-800-273-8255,” a song about suicide prevention. Kesha presented the group.
