Steve Harvey is known around the world for his hilarious stand up comedy, and now for hosting Family Feud. What he’s not well known for being overly emotional.

And that’s part of what made this surprise video reunion on his show so special. Apparently, for his birthday episode, his producer tracked down a very special person from Steve’s past. The man who helped kick start his life. 

When Steve was 26 years old, he fell on hard times. “I didn’t have nothing. And these people at the furniture store in Cleveland took me in,” he explained. 

Seeing the couple who were so pinnacle in his success so many years later, put Steve at a loss for words, and naturally brought tears to his eyes.
