The 'Happy' star became visibly emotional after realising the impact his song has made around the world.
Pharrell Williams was reduced to tears on Oprah Winfrey's show this week after being shown fan-made videos of his hit song 'Happy'.
The US star made an appearance on Oprah Prime that aired Monday (14th April), and became emotional while discussing how much the song and music video has resonated with people around the world.
"It's overwhelming because I love what I do and people have believed in me for so long that I can make it to this point, to feel that," Pharrell told Oprah, while breaking down in tears of joy.
The 'G I R L' star went on to say that after fans started making their own 'Happy' videos, it no longer felt like it was only his song.
"The next thing you know, we put out the video [in November] and all of a sudden, boom. I mean, when I say boom, I mean boom!" Pharrell explained. "We were like, 'what's happening?' First of all people are putting up their own videos, it was like no longer my song."
Meanwhile, Pharrell has also lent his hands to producing Ed Sheeran's new single 'Sing' and the British star told Capital how it took Pharrell three hours to convinve Ed that the song should be the first lifted from his second album.
