Seated at a piano, Swift spoke to the crowd, and she was visibly and audibly getting choked up as she talked about the trial.

After her speech, many people in the audience held up $1 bills, which is the amount she was awarded following her case against the former radio host Mueller. 'I wanted to thank you for just kind of...

"I think that this moment is important for awareness, for how parents are talking to their children, and how victims are processing their trauma, whether it be new or old", she told the magazine at the time. He filed a $3 million suit against the singer in September 2015, saying she ruined his career.

The incident, for those who don't remember, was that Taylor Swift spoke up about Mueller grabbing her butt (sexual harassment) during a photo-op, and once that news got back to Mueller's employer, he was sacked.
