Bassett was accepting the award for “Favorite Male TV star” from a children’s show at Saturday’s awards show.
“I would like to thank my Savior, Jesus Christ,” Bassett said after thanking his followers and the cast and crew of “High School Musical.”
The actor then sent his young fans a message of hope.
“I want to say something. There are a lot of people here who are overwhelmed, heartbroken and beaten down by life,” he began.
“I’m here to tell you — for those of you who have lost hope, there is a real God who loves you more than you will ever know,” Bassett said. “His promise is peace and my testimony is my healing.”

Before leaving the stage, Bassett gave fans three rules to follow.
“Remember: forgive quickly, love freely and walk courageously,” he said. “Love always wins in the end.”
Bassett became “a member of the LGBTQ community” in 2021. In an Instagram post, he wrote, “Love who you love shamelessly. It’s okay to find out who you are. Life is too short to leave ignorance and hate prevail. I choose love.”
