“I want to thank everybody. I’ve been through something. I’ve been through some things,” Foxx said as he accepted the award. “It’s crazy, I couldn’t do that six months ago. I couldn’t actually walk to….,” an emotional Foxx revealed before momentarily breaking down.

“It feels good to be here. I cherish every single minute now. It’s different. It’s different. I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy, because it’s tough when you almost… When it’s almost over, when you see the tunnel,” he continued.

“I saw the tunnel. I didn’t see the light!” he then joked. “It was hot in that tunnel so I didn’t know where I was going. S—, am I going to the right place? I seen the devil goin ‘C’mon, now.’ ”

In a lighter moment, Foxx addressed social media rumours about being cloned.

“I know a lot of people who were saying I was cloned out there. Boy, y’all ain’t s—,” he joked.

Reflecting on the health scare, Foxx expressed gratitude for life and emphasized the newfound appreciation he has for every moment.

He highlighted the importance of having a strong support system, acknowledging celebrity friends like Lenny Kravitz, Fantasia, and Taraji P Henson.

“My sister and my daughter were so great at not letting anybody know anything that happened,” he added.

Foxx concluded his emotional speech with, “I want to say 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 and get this Vanguard Award, all I can say is ‘Lord, have mercy, Jesus.'”
