Pharrell made a lot of people happy with his hit song Happy, but couldn’t hold back the tears during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Oprah had shown Pharrell a montage of videos created by fans, and it was so touching the iconic producer couldn’t help but cry.
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.
“Why am I crying on Oprah?” Williams laughed.
Williams discussed the “boom” of his upbeat anthem, featured on the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack and his new album G I R L, and broke down as he humbly 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,” Williams said through his tears.
