(CNSNews.com) – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made an appearance on Saturday at the Stellar Awards in Las Vegas, calling herself “a person of faith,” adding “what’s better than raising your voices to God.”

“I am a person of faith, and I’m a person who finds inspiration and support and meaning in many different ways, but what’s better than raising your voices to God and being able to connect that brings others along with you,” said Clinton.

 



“I am so grateful because the artists and the arrangers and the writers tap into something so deep,” she said about the Gospel singers and artists honored at the Stellar Awards, which will air on March 6 on TV One.

“I was so thrilled to learn that the Stellar Awards were here, and some of the greatest Gospel singers and inspirations were here, and a friend of mine knows Don, and they were talking, and he reached out, and I said I’m going to fit it in no matter what,” Clinton said.

“We’re in the middle of these caucuses here, but it lifted my spirits to come, to really express my appreciation,” the former secretary of State said.

Clinton also touched on the Flint water crisis and blamed Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder for the crisis.

“There’s a lot of really difficult things on there in the world today,” she said. “I’ve been in Flint, Michigan, recently. It’s just heartbreaking to see a community being poisoned because of the indifference, neglect of their governor.”

“And yet, I went to a house of prayer and the resilience, the love, and so much of it was communicated in the Gospel singing that was going on, so I’m someone who needs it myself, and I’m grateful to everyone who helps provide it,” Clinton added.
