Will.i.am is one of the lucky celebrities to run with the Olympic torch ahead of this summer’s London Games. He’s one of 8,000 individuals to be chosen to carry the torch this year, and the Black Eyed Peas performer couldn’t say enough about the honor.
“It feels like a dream,” he said. “This is something you’ve always seen growing up, so to be here today in the U.K. with all the hard work it took me to be able to get to this level and do that, it’s just pursuing my dreams. And now I’m in the UK and running with the torch and it’s great.”
David Beckham also recently carried the torch, helping to bring it from Greece to Britain.
