Despite currently being on tour in the U.K., Jackson flew to New York for the event, where she delivered a speech in Elliott’s honor.

Elliott responded to the special moment on social media, sharing that Jackson’s speech brought her to tears.

“I’m a big baby & i couldn’t stop crying tears of happiness. Our sistership has lasted over 17 years!,” Elliott posted on Instagram.
