Steve Harvey is an absolute legend. He does just about everything. He hosts his own television show, his own morning radio show, the much-beloved and long-running game show Family Feud, and more. He’s written several books and previously hosted the well-known Showtime at the Apollo. He’s won three Daytime Emmy Awards, 13 NAACP Image Awards, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He’s an actor, a comedian, producer … the list goes on and on.
But, do you know what his most important role is? All-around good guy. Harvey likes nothing more than to put the spotlight on others, make people laugh, and do what he can for people who’ve fallen on tough times. That’s why, when his birthday rolled around, he decided he didn’t want anything in the way of conventional gifts. Instead, he wanted to do what he could to help someone and make their life better. Along with his friend, rapper T.I., Harvey invited single mother Latasha Thomas on his show to give her the surprise of her life.
Latasha was already stretched thin, trying to make a living and raise four kids; so, when one unfortunate thing after another kept happening, her life, and the lives of her children, quickly spiraled out of control. After producers of Harvey’s show heard her story, they were able to help in a way that will do a lot to get her back on her feet. It might not be the gift that’s on everyone’s birthday wish list, but after seeing the looks on the faces of Thomas and her children, I think it’s safe to say that Harvey got the best birthday present he could ever wish for.
