Oprah Winfrey, one of the most remarkable women in the U.S., was reduced to tears when comedian Dave Chapelle paid touching tribute to her.


In two videos uploaded to the Facebook Page of TV personality and journalist Gayle King, Winfrey and Chapelle could be seen in front of each other while many other people were around them.

Using a microphone to make sure that everyone in the room could hear what he was saying, Chapelle told Winfrey, who put on a loose white dress, that society considered she was a role model and that she looked beautiful ‘up there.'

He kept saying that Winfrey inspired and made everyone feel happy and brave. Chapelle added that her success was an extension of her beautiful personality and that it was his favorite thing about her.


After recognizing that it might be a cliché, Chapelle said that nobody was engaging the American public like Winfrey did it when she started The Oprah Winfrey Show back in 1986.

“To be Black, growing in this city and to see all these slave masters’ monuments and all these things. And then seeing a woman, stand firm and just be yourself and confirm the American consciousness. It’s unprecedented, it may never happen the same way again.”

Later, Chapelle confessed to being honored to have witnessed the work Winfrey has been doing and the person she became.


Finally, the comedian took his time to make a joke saying that he was also honored to be standing right next to Winfrey without having to ask any questions. Winfrey, who was clearly touched by Chapelle’s words, could do nothing but cry and hug him.

Chapelle and the rest of the people who were next to Winfrey got together to congratulate the latest honor that the host received: her own exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture called 'Watching Oprah: The Oprah Winfrey Show and American Culture.'

According to I Love Old School Music, Winfrey admitted that it was by far the greatest honor she was received in her entire life.
