Pharrell Williams At The Oscars

As many celebrities gathered at the annual Academy Awards to present and accept the much sought-after golden statues, Pharrell was asked to present the Best Animated Feature Award along with actress Michelle Yeoh.  He brought a significant spiritual impact to the night, by quoting a Bible verse.

Actress Reigina King also mentioned God, while giving her acceptance speech.

The scripture Pharrell quoted was 1 Corinthians 3:11  –  “The Bible says, ‘When I was a child I spoke as a child. I understood as a child. I thought as a child. And when I became a man, I put away childish things,’” he said.

Michelle Yeoh then added “When we move to adulthood, we look back fondly” on the years that we experienced as children and the “creativity exhibited” within them.

Pharrell then commended every single nominee in the Best Animated Feature category by acknowledging their ability. There’s “no need to put things away but instead embrace and enjoy a shared experience,” he stated.

The rapper and singer received mixed comments for quoting Scripture. Some commended him but others were furious at what he did.

Some referred to his use of the Bible as “weird and unnecessary.” “No thanks for the weird and unnecessary Bible references,” Jason Connor posted on his Twitter.


However other tweets gave glory to God for what Pharrell did.

Katie Lansford was also happy to hear the Bible verse being shared at the Oscars.
