The young singer will be presented with the Big Help Award this weekend for her extensive philanthropic work and support of charities and nonprofits at the 25th Annual Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards. And we’re excited because The Salvation Army is one of the few organizations that she actively supports!
