Watching world get ‘happy’ brings Pharrell to tears


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Watching the world get happy brings “Mr. Happy” himself to tears of joy.

In an interview with Oprah, Pharrell Williams becomes overwhelmed with emotion watching dance videos from places around the world — dubbed to his Oscar-nominated song “Happy” from the “Despicable Me 2” soundtrack album.

Pharrell takes a moment to gather himself before he tells Oprah that he loves what he does and appreciates the fact that people have believed in him for so long for him to be able to make it to this point.

Oprah tells the teary-eyed music artist that one of the reasons “Happy” is so infectious is because it came from such a clear space with good energy for it to be able to flow from heart to heart. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
