Oprah Prime is a new title to an old favorite. Oprah Prime does not just feature entertainers and sports figures, but also political and unknown people you have never heard of before. When it comes to celebrities, Oprah brings to Prime the same human angle that she has always delivered. For example: On season opener, she interviewed Grammy award winner Pharrell Williams who shared with us how his tune "Happy" turned a struggling singer into a success. Like all people, Pharrell had his favorite singers whose music not only entertained him but inspired him to create his own style of Hip-Hop, R & B and Funk.
