Kelly Rowland has praised her gay fans for their unconditional love and says they are the reason she has been so successful
Kelly Rowland finds "strength" in the gay community.
The 'Commander' singer took to the stage at London nightclub G-A-Y to support her ousted 'X Factor' contestant Sophie Habibis earlier this year, and was overwhelmed with the crowd reaction, something she finds helps her grow as a person.
She said: "My gay fans are the reason I'm here, you know what I mean. For me, the gay community provides so much strength and I really say this with from the heart.
"There is so much unconditional love, and I appreciate that it has been so amazing. When I went to G-A-Y I was so overwhelmed with the love that I almost teared up."
Kelly is well known for her dancefloor anthems, and she admits she has been inspired by early 90s dance classics.
She said: "What kind of music do I like? For me, I like early 90s dance right now. It's just so cool and I've been into it for just a minute but yeah. I love it. It's so cool."
