I found myself humming, tapping and singing along to 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams while waiting patiently to pay for my grocery shopping today.For 3 minutes, 53 seconds, I let myself bathe in the yellow glow of happiness. I received a few odd stares, however I got many smiles which suggested we were all tapping into this collective moment of happiness.
This upbeat and exuberant song with its catchy lyrics " Because I'm happy,clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth" seems to be generating a global Happiness Movement online.
So, I decided to choose 14 videos from all over the world to spell out Because I'm Happy. I loved being happy in Abijan,Ivory Coast. Which is your favorite?
If this infectious neo soul /funk music genre is not your thing, then the new Black emoticons called Oju Africa might bring a smile to your face. 'Oju' is Yoruba (a language spoken in South West Nigeria) which means face.Oju Africa app is available on Android
