Steve Harvey got very emotional after the gospel singer sang a prophecy over him.

Duranice Pace, a gospel singer, recently visited the “Steve” variety show to share how God healed her vocal cords, CBN News reported.

The singer, who was abused in her early years, was given rat poison as a child which damaged her vocal cords.

“I believe the Lord gave me a touch when they fed me rat poison in Rochester, New York, and they had to cut out half of my vocal cords. And they said I would never talk again, but the man upstairs said, ‘You gonna sing again’,” Pace said.

Eleven years ago, she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and was told she only had three years to live. She didn’t let her diagnosis hold her back from living.

“I didn’t know if I was going to be alive but God done kept me alive to see you, sir,” she told Harvey.

During the set, the gospel singer sang a prophecy so powerful, it brought tears to Harvey’s eyes.

She sang, “This is Steve Harvey, he’s a good man. He loves the Lord and he’ll give you a helping hand. God’s going to bless Steve Harvey,” she sang. “Keep on, keep on, you helped me to live, sir, keep on … you special.”

Hearing those words touched Harvey in a very special way.

“You think I’m helping you, but you really helping me. I thank you because this was for me,” Harvey said.

Harvey also shared that he hoped his mother was watching this moment transpire. His mother passed away in 1997 and was a devout Christian.

Harvey later tweeted:

“God really wants to help us, but he requires that we have a relationship with him. If you’re out here trying to make it without God, you are making life harder than it needs to be. There is a higher power, there is a God. It’s time to get in touch with God.”

To God be the glory!
