Pharrell sat down with Oprah to talk about his childhood and all things ‘Happy.’

During the ‘Oprah Prime’ show, the talk show mogul showed photos of a young Pharrell before playing a moving clip of people from all over the world dancing to ‘Happy.’

“I’m so happy,” the legendary producer said with tears welling in his eyes.

The now solo artist watched as Oprah played a clip of “when people started putting videos around the world of themselves getting happy.” A phenomenon Pharrell describes the moment it was no longer ‘his’ song.

From London to Dakar, Germany, Iceland, Malawi and Washington DC, people from all over the globe were dancing to the infectious tune.

Overcome with emotion, Pharrell reached for tissues as he sobbed uncontrollably while Oprah repeatedly told him it was “beautiful.”

“It’s overwhelming because I love what I do,” Pharrell said.
