The inaugural Something in the Water festival was a success, and the man behind the vision sat down with CBS This Morning's Gayle King to talk about why he wanted to bring something special to his hometown.

"There's just been so much divisiveness in the air; we have to come together and not only celebrate our differences but recognize that through celebrating each other, we can do great things," Virginia Beach native Pharrell Williams told King, who attended the festival at the Oceanfront this past weekend.
