Pop star Fergie was honoured for her work with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (Lgbt) community at an awards gala in New York City on Wednesday night (12Nov14).

The Black Eyed Peas singer picked up a special prize during the 2014 Emery Awards at Cipriani Wall Street in Manhattan. She was introduced to the stage by reality Tv star Kelly Osbourne and gave a moving speech about her work with Lgbt charities.

After the gala, the pair was pictured partying together in Brooklyn, and Osbourne posted a snap of herself posing with Fergie on her Instagram.com page, writing, "Had the best night ever with my ultimate #Duchess @fergie! #SingItLaLaLaLaLa (sic)."
