The Young Man that Moved Steve

The Young Man that Moved Steve


– Everybody, we’re back with Walter Carr,
a really inspiring young man
who walked 20 miles to make
it to his first day of work.
What motivated you to walk
instead of callin’ off your first day?
– I had just got laid off my job for UPS.
So I put in job applications,
and nobody would give me a call back.
And I was just like, if somebody
just give me that chance,
I can show ’em who I am.
And the mover company called me and said,
“Hey, you’re hired.”
And I was so grateful for that.
My car broke down.
My ride bailed on me, and I was like.
I was thinkin’, “I can get there.
“I got two legs and two feet.
“I have a way to get there.”
So I was supposed to be
there at 7:45 in the morning.
I left at 11:40 p.m. that night.
At 4:00 in the morning, right
before you get on the highway,
I decided to take a two-minute rest.
And at that time, a
Pelham police officer came
to the side and said, “How are you?
“Are you okay?”
I said, “It gonna sound real crazy,
“but I’m actually headin’ to work
“on my first day of the job.”
– So what happened next?
– His friend that knew of me, in the area,
came picked me up and drove
me the rest of the few miles.
And at 6:30 in the morning,
we arrived at the home,
house, and he went ahead and checked.
And it was okay for me to
come in and be this early.
– So the homeowner, Jenny, is here.
(audience applauds)
Okay, so you’re the homeowner.
What’d you think when you opened the door,
and you found out what
had happened to Walter?
– To be honest, my eyes
just filled with tears.
At 6:30 in the morning, to hear
that story, you just
loved him, right away.
I mean, he just, just a fine
young man, you can tell.
And, you know, being a
mom, I knew he was tired.
I said, “Hey, why don’t you go on upstairs
“and just take a little rest
before we start the move?
“And that way, you can, you know,
“rest before your team comes.”
– Wait a minute; hold it.
You tell this kid to go
upstairs in your house,
in a bedroom, and rest.
– I did because I knew he had to be tired.
And he said, “No ma’am,
I wanna get started
“and help you guys move.”
(audience applauds)
So, yeah.
– All right, so let’s
get to this part, folks.
Luke Marklin, who happens to be the CEO
of Bellhop Movers, was so impressed
by Walter’s determination
that he wanted to personally thank him.
Check it out.
(upbeat band music)
– Got everything he needs to be a Bellhop.
The one piece he’s missing is like,
a way to get there.
– It is.
– So this is my car.
(distant traffic)
I’d like it to be your car.
– Seriously?
(audience applauds)
– This whole story is so good.
It’s so good on so many levels.
You know, first of all, young people.
To find that type of grit and hustle
in a young person, today.
(audience applauds)
Today.
Jenny was so inspired to help Walter out
that she set up a GoFundMe for him.
The goal was to reach $2,000.
It ended up collecting more than $90,000.
(audience exclaims and applauds)
Walter, what’d you do?
– I gave $25,000 to Birmingham
Education Foundation
that I was in in high school.
(audience applauds)
Their organization gets
high school students
ready to go into college
life and get ready for–
– So you knew about this organization.
– Yes, I was in it in high school.
– Oh, you were in it.
– Yes, so they made me
to be what I am, today.
(audience applauds)
– Really?
You know him?
– Yes, I know him.
– Mr. Carpenter, what would
you like to tell Walter?
– Well, Walter, you’ve inspired me.
You’ve inspired thousands of
people, all over the world.
And with your permission,
we wanna use the donation
that you gave us to start
the Walter Carr Award.
(audience applauds)
– I mean, for him to do that in your name.
For this woman to open up her home.
For this guy to give you a car.
It’s still a lotta good
people in this country, man.
It’s still a lotta good people who care.

It just is, man.
It just really does take a village.
You’re 20.

– No sir, I didn’t.
And you my biggest idol.
I always idolized you, like my whole life.
(audience applauds)
Every show,
everything you do, I’ve
always been there, to watch.
– Hey man, don’t do this to me, today.
(audience chuckles and applauds)
– It’s an honor to be here.
It’s an honor to be here,
to see my biggest idol
and be right here with you.
It’s a blessin’ to me.
I thank God for it.
I really do.

But you gotta hang in there to find out.
You can’t give up.

He show up; He be shinin’, man.
(audience applauds)
God show up.
See, the color is all out of this story.
This ain’t a story about color.
(audience exclaims and applauds)
This is really; this is really the truth
about who we are and
who we supposed to be.
It ain’t ‘posed to be, “No, oh God,
“he can’t come stay in my house.
“Who that little black man at the house?
“Call the police.”
The police, we keep hearin’ about
how they don’t pick us up.
They do pick you up.
(audience applauds)
The police will go get
you somethin’ to eat.
Every police ain’t shootin’ us.
We gotta start; we gotta start
tellin’ these stories, man,
because these are stories
that’s gotta get out.
Because it inspires other people.
This is so crazy, the way this happenin’.
Who lets somebody they don’t know
come in their house and
go upstairs and lay down?
Who gives away a car?
Who puts a scholarship?
You got a scholarship in
your name, doll. (chuckles)
That’s crazy.
Do you see that, yes?
(audience applauds)
Well, Walter, you done
messed me up, today.
That’s not the only surprise we got.
Your dedication and determination
has really, like I said,
it just inspires all of us to be better.
You have no idea the path you’re set on.
You don’t know, man.
You can actually be
a poor kid from nothin’.
– Yeah.
– And because of God’s Grace and Mercy,
He can put you in places
(audience applauds)
you never, ever thought you’d be.
See, I’m sittin’ here.
I’m trippin’ ’cause I’m a you.
I was a kid out of the dirt.
And where I am today,
is because of that Grace and Mercy.
(audience exclaims)
It’s sorta crazy, man.
I hope you see what’s happenin’
and get on this path and stay there
’cause you didn’t sent in
this direction for no reason.
You ain’t got a scholarship
in your name for no reason.
These people didn’t give
you this car for no reason.
This woman didn’t open up
her house for no reason.
The police didn’t pick you up
and didn’t do you like you read about.
They helped you; they fed you.
All of this happened
(claps hands)
for a reason.
You got to stay on that path, man.
– Yes, sir.
– ‘Cause of that, we gonna send you
on a five-night getaway
to the True Bay Boutique
Resort in Grenada.
(audience applauds)
Yeah, now, you probably
don’t know where that is
’cause I didn’t know where
Grenada was ’til I was 44.
So you gonna need a passport.
You gotta a passport?

  1. Walter is a determined, brave young Man who's letting nothing get in the way of his success! He's a sterling example!!! Don't you just love him? Won't forget to mention that he's a really cute Dude 😉.

  2. this young man is so precious I love him,  he so respectful, humble and kind. God bless him in every way,  And handsome  !!!!!!

  3. Steve I applaud for saying the police is not always shutting us a white women let a blk kid rest in her house need to said . we focus more on the negative instead of the positive. that has to stop

  4. Very determined inspiring fellow citizen!!! Next time anyone in same situation with access to smartphone, download app like Waze carpool to get ride to work and spend even more energy at work showcasing what you bring to the game…

  5. You can tell by the look on his face that woman did not tell him to go up stairs and rest. She lying. 😂

  6. this is why i love the south a lot…as a foreigner visiting the States I have been to 40 states at least…and I find the Southern states truly having the most hospitality…people are welcoming and kind and if you are in trouble they will go miles end to help you…these type of values are hard to find in cities like Los Angeles in my opinion or New York. Now I am not religious but I believe in the good of human kind…I learned one thing when dealing with Americans…do not talk about religion and politics and if you do that you will see the true human in front of you…just try it !

  7. This is one of the most Beautiful stories I’ve ever heard in my life!💕🙏🏼God Bless you all! God is G👀D!

  8. very moving ,
    Like ALLAH said in the QURAN : <<Did We not expand for you?,And We removed from you your burden , Which had weighed upon your back, And raised high for you your repute, For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease, For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease, So when you have finished then stand up , And to your Lord direct [your] longing.>>
    sadaka allah al adim .

  9. I miss that wonderful, loving, down to earth about the U.S . There is a reason why they say there is no place like home. Wonderful video Mr.Harvey

  10. Only thing going to help him is reparations money a car is not going to help he's going 2 go through the same thing he did last time without no money he needs money not items

  11. great how to see how somebody gets a lot, and steve just give him some more because he already got couple of things. and that is how the world works. people wo get something, always get everything. people never getting enything, will even get less. perfec example of how the world is falling apart and steve is part of it.

  12. Steve, you nailed it on the head……We do need to start telling these stories!!! They're out there…..keep pursuing that, it's what'll heal the country and what will drown out so much of the negative stuff that fills the airways…….Thank you for doing what you do!

  13. I heard that Steve‼️ Young people pay attention ‼️ You got to come out of self – due to the flesh and what the flesh wants and put work in. It will PAY OFF – -You put GOD first and everything will fall into place sooner or later EVERY SINGLE TIME 🙌🏽💯

  14. Steve god sent you. This information is very interesting 🧐 am from Jamaica 🇯🇲 and am reaching out to you thank you this is necessary information ℹ️ your like a father to me

  15. I'm gone miss UNCLE STEVE on daytime. But whatever and where GOD LEADS YOU. I pray that your success MULTIPLIES A MILLION TIMES OVER .. and I'll continue 2 watch.. And them suits. Mane i love them suits and shoes. #SHARPDRESSER

  16. "If you're a spiritual person, you can't miss this" This is what Steve Harvey means

    He grows up admiring one of his idols, Steve Harvey who came from poverty just like him, and he is also part of the Birmingham education program which helped him learn hard work ethic, his work ethic and determination then inspired the cops, the cops then drove him to the homeowner, the homeowner invites him to rest but he would rather provide his services instead, this leads the homeowner to praise his work ethic and services on social media, his employer sees these social media posts about their employee and gives him a car, which leads to more social media views, so the homeowner starts a GoFundMe campaign, which raises $90,000, which he then donates $25,000 back to the very same Birmingham education program that taught him hard work ethic in the first place, the education program director then turns right around and uses that donation to start an award and scholarship in his name to inspire the next generation of kids like him and to repeat the cycle on and on and on… and all of this is revealed not just on any other talk show but specifically on his idol, Steve Harvey's daytime show!

    You can't write this stuff! The domino effect is absolutely legendary! Every single person was exactly where they needed to be and every action was what it needed to be. From the teachers at the Birmingham Education program to the young man, then the cops, the homeowner, the employer, the program director, all the people it touched on social media and even his idol, Steve Harvey, everyone made this better and was made better by it!

  17. This really encouraged me. Behind my beautiful smile is a lot of pain. I don’t want to live. But When Steve said you dont know who God created you to be, but you have to hang in there to find out that resonated with me. I’m going to try to hang in there.

  18. Remember….The people giving the money on the GoFundMe site could see how much was raised but kept on giving well past the goal of 2K.
    Watch the video of Steve’s hard and humble beginning. Very similar story. I firmly believe Steve owes all his success to those two people who helped him get a start.

  19. Ok..who is this kid and can we have more please… And Steve stop making me cry… I just love you and your show.. I hope you never leave. All the 💘

  20. THE PRODUCT OF BEING RAISED BY SOME SPECIAL PEOPLE! OUTSTANDING YOUNG MAN! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👍🏽

  21. There is a reason why God is allowing me to watch this video right now, This will be my story very soon in Jesus name Amen 🙂 Take Care everyone

  22. My name is Lil Xolid on SoundCloud and I’m cooking up some hit 🔥 Im 14 and trying to get noticed 🤩 Would you mind checking my SOUNCLOUD {Lil Xolid} and a follow would be really appreciated 🤓

  23. My name is Lil Xolid on SoundCloud and I’m cooking up some hit 🔥 Im 14 and trying to get noticed 🤩 Would you mind checking my SOUNCLOUD {Lil Xolid} and a follow would be really appreciated 🤓

  24. This is Morton from Kenya, Mr Harvey , from all your shows, this is my best because am connected to it, brought up as an orphan, with only a high school certificate I am a casino manager in Nairobi. I tell the boy that my secret is honesty and discipline. You can go places you never thought. Places where degrees, PhDs can't. When the spirit of God is upon you, know that you have been chosen for a cause, thumbs high young man, Steve God bless you

  25. No. God didnt have no say in this.. He just worked hard and got into a smart white family home that made a gofundme out of his story that sold well. And everyone just wanted to look good so helped him a lil.

  26. He also told them this parable: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit? The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?  How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

     “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.

    Above me is written in Luke 6: 39-45. Trust in Jesus oh my brothers. For He died for you to save you! Give your heart to God, for He has giveth His only Son to you.

  27. I am sitting here with tears streaming down at the heart and humility of Steve Harvey. That i believe is the secret to his success1

  28. I dont know if i'm too spiritual but i beleive that whoever's watched this video would get to see the hand of God in their own life

  29. See Steve, that is why we need to live right because, you can't see the world it dosen't mean that someone you've never met is not looking up to you as their idol ,love is deep and kids without a father figure is needing men like you to help them everyday along the way. Just by watching the way you presents yourself on social media someone has put their trust in you as a roll model.
    May Gob forever bless you continue to be an inspiration to others Steve.

  30. I walked to work for about a year, it wasn't no 20 miles but it was hard so I can't imagine how hard it was for this guy. I know the feeling of being gifted a car when you don't have much my brother gifted me his car and to this day the thought of it feels me with joy. I wish good fortune to anyone who struggles like this and respect their determination to keep grinding.

  31. Kid has a mentality and work ethic that I am at 39 still struggling to develop, but calling him a kid is wrong, he is a real man and an inspiration to everyone!

  32. Homeowner : opens door to rest
    Owner: gives truck
    School: names award
    Steve: all thanks to God
    All 3: 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃

  33. The parents on this show remind me of my sister and brother in law who have brought kids from China, Mexico, and Haiti to the USA, and a few left for another family, but 3 didn't. One married my niece, and 2 were raised here in the states since they were just little things from China. I adore all of them and know all of my family feels the same way. People out there can do amazing things for others, and I have seen it change lives.

  34. The police officers, the woman and the man that gave him his car are all angels they might not know it, we still have beautiful people on this earth a hope of mankind
