Miley Cyrus Wins Video of the Year at VMA 2014, Sends Homeless Teen to Accept the Award

When Miley Cyrus was called as the winner of Video of the Year at the VMA 2014, she chose not to walk to the stage but rather, she sent someone in her place — a homeless teen named Jesse accepted the award for her and delivered a heartfelt speech to raise awareness regarding the problem of the homeless youth in America.

Jesse is one of the many homeless youth in America. The speech he delivered was about his story, which was watched on by the tearful Miley Cyrus.
