Happy 58th Birthday, Oprah!

The queen of talk, mega-mogul, and humanitarian bar none, Oprah Winfreyhas been an unending source of inspiration for all.  She has graced our homes and warmed our hearts with more than 25 years of lessons and enlightenment that we’ve gathered from her shows.  And now at 58 years young, the diva is still on a mission to help us achieve our “authentic selves” and ultimately “be the change you want to see in the world” via her OWN cable television network and countless other projects.  Oprah, NewsOne wishes you the happiest of birthdays and would like to share some of our wishes for you.

1) William Shakespeare once said that with mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.”  We wish you a year of endless smiles that are brought on by the sweetest and happiest memories of your life.

2) You are a hero and your phrase from ”zero to hero,” which means that no matter where or how you begin in life, you can make a difference, has been so inspirational to many.  Your influence has spread far and wide and you’ve used your might to inspire, empower, and educate the masses.  We wish you continued compassion and vision for a better world.

3) Your love of acting moved you to form your own production company, HARPO Entertainment Group.  We wish that your company continues to be a formidable force in films and television and that the fire in you never dies to bring us a continuance of quality entertainment programming.

7) Finally, you who have been a true trailblazer, glass ceiling shatterer, media maven extraordinaire, and best friend to the masses,  we truly wish that you continue to inspire “Ah-Ha” moments and help us to ‘live our best lives.’
