Leave it to Steve Harvey to share a hilarious story about how he got to meet Michael Jackson. His humorous post put fans in their feelings.
In a throwback segment on “The Steve Harvey Morning” show Wednesday, Aug. 29 — which was broadcast on what would have been Jackson’s 60th birthday — Harvey aired a talk he had with the late superstar about how they wound up meeting each other.
“People used to tell me different places there’s this guy who talks about you every day,” Jackson says. “And I go, ‘Who is it?’ ‘His name is Steve.’ I go ‘Steve?’ And then I saw the Kings of Comedy show and said, ‘Is this the guy?'”
Harvey added that although he’s received a phone call former President Bill Clinton, from Air Force One, he did not have an impact on him the way the “Thriller” singer ringing up on the show did.
“Clinton cool and everything … he ain’t Michael, though,” Harvey says. “He wasn’t ‘Billie Jean’ and ‘Beat It,’ ‘ABC.’
“Lookin’ through the window, window!'” Harvey sings of The Jackson 5 song, “Lookin’ Through the Windows.” “Woo! That was my jam!”
Harvey then launches “I’ll Be There” before urging the studio to sing along.
“Come on, everybody! Sing with us! That was my jam, Mike!”
The throwback post had fans feeling the feels.
