Can we all just agree that only Oprah Winfrey can make a man cry on television?
During the filming of one of the episodes for Oprah’s TV Show “Oprah Prime”, 41-year-old music producer and singer Pharrell Williams was invited on set for a quick chat about several things such as his childhood, his “Happy” single topping charts globally and more.
She brought a very flattered Pharrell Williams to tears when she showed him a montage of fan-created videos from around the world inspired by his No. 1 hit song “Happy.” The seven-time Grammy winner, clad in his signature Vivienne Westwood hat, was visibly moved by the footage as he wept and remained choked up for several seconds.
Laughing Pharrell said, “Why am I crying on Oprah?”. He expressed his gratitude to those who have supported his career. “It’s overwhelming because I love what I do and I just appreciate the fact that people have believed in me for so long that I could make it to this point.”
This unfiltered emotional display only makes the most likable man in pop music more likable. You can watch the montage that was shown to Pharrell to bring him to tears below. The montage was made to celebrate International Day of Happiness. The video was taken from videos recorded by several countries.
