Newly announced UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador singer Katy Perry was chosen to perform at the Ninth Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball at Cipriani Wall Street hotel on December 3, 2013 in New York City.
Katy Perry arrived at the Snowflake Ball in a red velvet halterneck Naeem Khan gown, which was topped off with an embroidered floor-length cape.
For her performance as a special musical guest, the 29-year-old singer wore a one-shoulder silver embroidered Michael Kors gown with a giraffe-type animal print. Katy sang her latest single “Unconditionally” which is part of her third album PRISM.
About her new role as an ambassador for UNICEF, Katy explained, “I believe young people have the power to change their own lives, with our help,” adding “I am honored to join UNICEF as a Goodwill Ambassador, and committed to doing everything I can to help children and adolescents who come from such different backgrounds but want the same thing: a brighter future.”
