"When it looked like the sun wasn't gonna shine anymore, god put a rainbow in the clouds," sings Maya Angelou in a clip from Oprah's Master Class: Special Edition which airs tonight on OWN at 10 p.m. ET/PT. "I've had so many rainbows in my cloud."

Angelou adds that she brings the people who have represented her "rainbows" with her where ever she goes. "I don't ever feel like I don't have any help," she says. "I've had rainbows in my clouds."

Who has been the "rainbow" in your clouds?
