'Happy' video makes Pharrell Williams cry
“We put out the video on November 21st, all of a sudden boom,” Williams told Oprah. “It was no longer my song. “
“Why am I crying on Oprah?” asked Williams after watching the video.
“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 to feel that.”
