American talk show star and television producer Oprah Winfrey welcomed friends and family for a celebration in honor of her 88-year-old father, Vernon Winfrey.
It was important to celebrate and respect her father while he was still alive, according to Oprah, who hosted a magnificent backyard barbecue party to honor her ailing father.
As she observed the anniversary of American independence, the famous person urged everyone to congratulate one another.
In her Instagram post, Oprah stated, “Giving my father his “flowers” while he’s still well enough to smell them. Happy 4th of July as you gather with your family and friends. Remember to celebrate with each other.”
“My father is ill and so we wanted to be able to have all of his friends come and celebrate him while he’s able to receive the joy,” she said.
Michelle Obama, the spouse of former US President Barack Obama, has also praised Oprah.
In a compelling tweet on Tuesday, Michelle praised the renowned media personality.
The former US president’s wife paid tribute to Oprah on her verified Facebook page with a touching comment, calling her legacy “remarkable.”
Oprah, according to Michelle, has always been good to her family.
She wrote, “When Oprah connects with something, a person, a book, a song, an idea—she makes sure to shine her light on it. She validates it. She anoints it.
“People know that when Oprah is involved, there is no pretence, no fluff—whether it’s her work in arts and media or her philanthropic work on health care, food equity, and more,” Michelle added.
