Steve Harvey Breaks Down Over Emotional Guest Surprise
Kristin Danley 4/2/2018
When comedian and talk show host Steve Harvey turned the big 5-8, his family and friends had a huge surprise in store for him. Steve's show producers had even kept everything a big secret from him and he was about to be floored by what they had planned to help him celebrate live on the air.
Steve first called out the show's host for the day. He had no idea who it was, so he was pleasantly surprised to see his elegant wife Marjorie come out from backstage.
Marjorie and Steve lovingly greeted each other, then she sent it out live to a news reporter in Cleveland. She stood with a throng of people in what seemed to be a residential area.
It turned out the crowd was standing right on the very block where Steve grew up for a special ceremony near his childhood home. Seeing his old stomping grounds from his youth brought a few tears to Steve's eyes.
Cleveland council members spoke to Steve and then the local high school cheerleading team performed a special cheer just for him! His longtime childhood friends, high school pals, and college fraternity buddies appeared on camera and gave a shout out to him, too, reminding him of their motto that "Friendship is essential to the soul."
At this point, Steve is quite emotional, but they aren't done with the birthday surprises just yet. The biggest gift from the people of Cleveland to Steve is about to be unveiled, and his emotional response to the sign is absolutely priceless.
