The Oprah Winfrey Show
The Mighty O, along with All My Children grad Mark Consuelos, Gayle King and Ali Wentworth (How much you wanna bet they are being groomed for a coffee talk morning program from Harpo?) premiered the new Barack Obama tribute song/video "It's A New Day" from The Black-Eyed Peas' Will.i.am today.I could keep typing here about how awesome this is, but the above clip speaks for itself.
That sound you hear is The Mighty O, aka Oprah Winfrey, moving one step closer to world domination. Winfrey's unstoppable syndicated talker, The Oprah Winfrey Show, currently in its 22nd seaason, is now being broadcast in Spanish for the U.S.'s largest Latino markets (Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Houston and Dallas). Additional cities are said to be added later this season according to Yahoo News. O in Espanol will utilize Secondary Audio Programming (SAP), as well as closed-captioning.

In the latest edition of OK!magazine, on newstands now, actor/comedian/singer Jamie Foxx reveals it was none other than Oprah Winfrey who helped him snag his Best Actor Academy Award for the 2005 Ray Charles biopic Ray.
"Oprah said, 'Before they give the Oscar out, there's a certain way you have to campaign and carry yourself," said Foxx. "Being a comedian, [I was] sort of looking at everything as like 'Oh, it's a joke,' and she said, 'No, you really need to take it seriously."
From that point Winfrey began introducing Foxx to major Academy players like Sidney Poitier which helped Foxx's breakthrough performance get the recognition it deserved, the article reveals. Never underestimate the power of the Mighty O!
