About Pharrell Williams

Depending on who you ask, Pharrell is either a singer, rapper, songwriter, reality TV star, judge, record producer, or fashion designer. Known for his eclectic style both on his tracks and in his fashion choices, Pharrell’s mountie hat at the Grammy Awards caused enough buzz to get its own Twitter handle @Pharrellhat. He has ten Grammy Awards and his 2014 hit song “Happy" was recently turned into a children’s book. These days, you’ll see him turning his chair around on NBC’s The Voice. In 2015, he produced Missy Elliott’s comeback album and started the #MyFreedom campaign, to promote awareness of racial inequality and crowdsource a new video.
