Nick Jonas will receive the Hero Award at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards.
As well as being nominated for three fan voted awards, Nick is being recognized for his philanthropic work this Saturday at the RDMA’s. The honor comes from Nick’s involvement in the Type 1 Diabetes community and his non-profit organization Beyond Type 1, which he co-founded.
In honor of the RDMA’s being only days away, we recently asked fans on Twitter to share their thoughts on what makes Nick a hero in their eyes using the hashtag #MyHeroNickJonas. So many fans reached out with inspiring and heartfelt messages as to why Nick not only deserves the Hero Award, but is also a hero and role model to them. From his charity, to his music and fan involvement, it’s clear that Nick couldn’t be more perfect for the Hero Award. Check out some of the responses below:
