Demi Lovato Cries During Brooklyn Concert While Celebrating 6 Years Sober”

Several fans captured the emotional speeches on video, noting that the powerful moment was followed by a performance of Demi's song "Warrior", which she dedicated to her fans.

ET spoke with Lovato just after she reached five years sober, last March, where she opened up about her life depending on keeping clean.

On Friday (March 16), while delivering her live set at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, the former Disney star became inundated with emotion yet again when her tour mates, Kehlani and DJ Khaled, surprised her by leading the audience in a "Happy Birthday" sing-along to show their support of Lovato's sober birthday.

"You give me hope and strength and pride, and every bit of myself that I am - the good side, the bad side, the amusing side, the quirky side", Khaled added.

Kehlani said: 'You give me hope and strength and pride, and every bit of myself that I am - the good side, the bad side, the amusing side, the quirky side. "Mental health is something that we all need to talk about, and we need to take the stigma away from it", she continued, as her fans occasionally shouted words of encouragement.

Lovato's Tell Me You Love Me World Tour rolls into the Bell Centre in Montreal on Saturday night and stops by the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Monday, Mar. 19.

Kehlani, in turn, celebrated Lovato's authenticity and openness: "You give me hope and strength and pride, and every bit of myself that I am-the good side, the bad side, the amusing side, the quirky side". "Let's let everybody know it's OK to have a mental illness; it's OK to have an addiction problem".

Lovato added: "I can never say thank you enough to you guys for the support that you've given me over the years".

"As a 22-year-old woman, you represent me, you represent every single women in this room and even every single young boy", the singer said.

"I'm so, so, so, so proud of you, and honored to know you", Khelani added.

The more public figures like Demi Lovato talk openly about mental health struggles, the less stigmatized they will be.

"Kehlani and DJ Khaled thank you so much", the 25-year-old singer said.

Fans started to chant the singer's name, and after thanking her friends Kehlani and DJ Khaled, she then opened up to the crowd about her sobriety. In addition, Lovato sang lively and upbeat versions of tracks she was featured on, ranging from Cheat Codes' "No Promises" to Luis Fonsi's "Échame La Culpa".
