Prayers sent Steve Harvey’s way. We love you, Harvey!
Birthdays are the moments that remind us that we are getting a year older.
But not many people like big parties with pomposity. Some prefer to spend these holidays with loved ones.
When you are famous and one of the most beloved presenters, this is almost impossible.
Some years ago, when the great Steve Harvey had his birthday, he reminded everyone that he didn’t want anything big. Well, it turned out that the staff working with him on his shows didn’t listen.
They had a very nice idea that Harvey liked a lot and couldn’t hold back the tears. He didn’t care if people would say that grown man don’t cry because the moment was so emotional he simply couldn’t contain himself from expressing his feelings.
While on the show, he read the following lines out of the teleprompter, “Calling in by satellite from Orlando. Let’s see who it is.” Reading the word Orlando, Harvey stopped for a while because it reminded him of the times he resided there at the very beginning of his career when his life was unstable and almost crumbling down.
When a man appeared on the screen Harvey became emotional.
“Hello, my name is Rich Liss and I’m calling to wish you a happy birthday,” the man said, to which the host replied, “Hey, man. Man, I love you.”
Rich then tells Harvey there is someone else who wants to see him and Harvey immediately guesses it’s Becky, Rich’s wife.
Rich, Becky, and Harvey go way back to when young Harvey was struggling and these two people offered him a contract, and some money, and helped him get back on his feet. Years later, Harvey still hasn’t forgotten how generous and loving they were towards him.
“The fact that Steve Harvey is a public figure and is all over the place and they never tried to reach out just shows that they did what they did out of the kindness in the heart and they did it with 0 expectations of anything in return. I hope they’ve stayed in contact and still talk, that’s the true definition of the family right there,” one person wrote. “Steve Harvey is one man who never forgot where he came from and always gives back,” another added.
