Steve Harvey was on vacation and the theme song for Family Feud came on and brought tears to his eyes. And he shared about that emotional moment when he was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
"I went to this island off of Cannes in the south of France, and the only way to get to this restaurant is by boat," he said. "And I walked in and Elton John is there....and then all of a sudden, my daughter said, ‘Daddy, Elton John's walking over here!' He said, ‘Steve, my man!' and we hugged and everybody in the restaurant was watching. And I talked to him, and he went back to his seat."
It's what happened moments later that got Steve teary-eyed. "The DJ in the south of France started playing the ‘Family Feud' theme song, and everybody in that restaurant knew the song, and I started crying," he shared. "It just made me cry. And my daughter said, ‘Dad, why are you crying?'
Steve continued: "‘Cause I'm a hood guy. I'm from Cleveland, I come from nothing. And these people are doing the ‘Family Feud' theme song in the south of France? It just messed me up, man."
