One of our favorite coaches from The Voice is being honored by France for their contribution to the arts.
Pharrell Williams, who has been making music since the 1990s, joined the Voice family as a coach in 2014 for Season 7 and won in Season 8 with 16-year-old singer Sawyer Fredricks.
On Tuesday (March 7), the French Ministry of Culture awarded the insignia of Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters to the singer and producer, who was in awe as Audrey Azolay pinned the award on his jacket.
“This is another level,” Williams said during his acceptance speech. “For me, France is the center of art.”
He added that he wished his wife and his children were there, but since they have three newborn triplets, they didn’t make the trip to France with him.
We’re sure Williams’ Voice family is so proud of him for earning this prestigious award. Watch the moment he received the honor below.
