In one such emotional moment, Harvey learned that the mayor of Cleveland had declared January 17 as "Steve Harvey Day." The city also named a portion of E. 112th Street as "Steve Harvey Way."


Harvey's sister Mona stood in the group of people on the street where they grew up as children.

"We're here because we love you...If mom and dad were here, dad would be saying, 'Do you know I'm his daddy?' and mama would be just shaking her head! We love you, Steve!"

That's when Harvey lost his composure and couldn't stop himself from crying on live television. Soon, a group of cheerleaders appeared in the video and they performed a special routing chanting Steve's name.


In another segment of the show, author-philanthropist Alan Fox, surprised Harvey by making an unplanned visit to his show. Fox made a $200,000 donation to the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation.

Harvey's tears of happiness did not end there; neither did the list of surprises. All seven children of Harvey came to the show and shared their favorite moments with their adorable father.

Harvey concluded the show by saying that it was his best TV moment. He shared that his life was completely devoted to his children. The proud father promised his children on live TV that he'd defend their honor until his last breath.
