Most Christians in Hollywood are notably bold in their faith in Jesus in the public. And today, another famous Hollywood star gave honor to God at The People’s Choice Awards – the actor and comedian Kevin Hart.
Kevin Hart had an accident this past September, along with two other people. Kevin came away alive but his back injuries were severe. Because of this, he spent several days in the hospital. And he hasn’t appeared in the spotlight since then.
The near-fatal car accident almost took Kevin’s life. He went through surgery and post-operative treatment, according to The Christian Post.

Just last month, Kevin posted an Instagram video highlighting the obstacles he has faced since the accident. He took the opportunity to thank all the people who stood by him during his recovery.
“My appreciation for life is through the roof. I’m thankful for my family, my friends,” he said. “I’m thankful for the people that simply ride with me, have been with me, ’cause you stood by me. My fans — I’m thankful for all your love and support. So don’t take today for granted, ’cause tomorrow’s not promised.”

Kevin also pointed out that the accident woke him up to the reality of life. To him, surviving in that accident meant a new beginning.
“You know when God talks, you got to listen. I swear, life is funny. Because some of the craziest things that happen to you end up being the things that you needed most. And in this case, I honestly feel like God basically told me to sit down,” he explained.
Then he added, “I’m thankful for simply still being here. The role to be an even bigger and better version of me. Looking forward to an amazing 2020.”
Over the weekend, Kevin received the Best Comedy Act award at the People’s Choice Awards for the second year in a row. This was his first major appearance after the car accident. The crowd even gave him a standing ovation.
Kevin professed on stage, “First and foremost, thank God because I definitely don’t have to be here. Being that I am, makes me appreciate life even more. It makes me appreciate the things that really matter. I want to thank my wife and kids who really stepped up to the plate for me.”
