Lord, have mercy, Jesus.'”

In a poignant moment, Foxx acknowledged the unwavering support of his family and celebrity pals, including Lenny Kravitz, Fantasia, and Taraji P Henson. The star-studded event turned into a heartwarming affair as Foxx expressed his gratitude for every precious minute, concluding with a humble nod to his unexpected journey. As he gripped the Vanguard Award, Foxx confessed, “Six months ago I couldn’t fathom that this could happen or that I would be here, but as I walk up here to this microphone, all I can say is ‘Lord, have mercy, Jesus.'”
