I would like to say witchcraft was involved. But to be honest, I prayed a lot more than any kind of sorcery. I literally prayed every round, especially that winning round. I'd close my eyes and say, 'God, give me focus and calm and let me just read these letters.' 

The Clarissa Explains It All actress brought home $1,039,800 for Youth Villages, which assists children with emotional and behavioral issues and their families. 

Hart also requested to take home the $1 million winning card with her, saying:

The card, signed by Pat Sajak and Vanna White, now resides in Hart's home office in Nashville, Tennessee, along with her show nametag and some of the confetti showered on her when she won.
