Pharrell Williams' SNL Performance Makes Local Kids' Dreams Come True

It's no surprise that we're fans of Pharrell Williams' song 'Happy' here at Celebrations. It's like the musical gift that keeps on giving -- it always puts us in a good mood, and has been such an inspirational mantra to all kinds of people, all over the world. 

So when Pharrell was announced as the musical guest on SNL this week, it wasn't really a surprise he would perform his Oscar-nominated song. He donned his signature Smoky the Bear hat, and rocked out to our favorite upbeat song -- and he wasn't alone.

The best part of Pharrell's performance was that he was joined by a big group of talented teens, who danced the entire time. Some of the kids even busted out into their own solo break dances!

Pharrell gave a shoutout to the group on his Twitter after the performance, writing, "Thanks to Fatima Robinson and @blocnyc [a local NYC talent agency] for the kids who performed #Happy with me on @nbcsnl." Earlier he gushed, "Thank you @nbcsnl for inviting me to perform on Saturday Night Live tonight. #fun."


As much as we love the song and music video for bringing an upbeat and positive message, we love it even more that he took the message of the song to heart and really made some kids' dreams come true.



Take a look at the fun video performance, and let us know what you think! Did you like this performance of "Happy?" Are you sick of the song yet? Drop us a comment below!
