Singer voices support for U.S. gay marriage ruling at Golden Melodies

Taipei, June 27 (CNA) Hong Kong singer Karen Mok (莫文蔚) voiced support Saturday for the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that made gay marriage legal across the United States, at the Golden Melody Awards ceremony in Taipei.

U.S. President Barack Obama announced that equal marriage is recognized nationwide today, Mok said on stage before presenting the award for Best Song of the Year.

"I think this is fantastic. Our society is improving, but no matter how it changes, what never changes is 'love wins,'" the outspoken singer said.

Her remarks drew big applause and cheers from the audience. It came after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Friday (U.S. time) that the U.S. Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marry.

Mok was also nominated for the Best Mandarin Female Singer award, which was to be presented later in the ceremony.
