Jonas Brothers, LeBron James, Alicia Keys and more join Barack Obama’s virtual graduation commencement speech – The Sun
OPRAH, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus and many more stars joined former President Barack Obama in celebrating this year’s Class of 2020 during a virtual graduation.
The remote commencement was held for high school seniors who could not have a proper ceremony due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The 58-year-old ex commander in chief led the livestream and shared an optimistic message for the graduating class.
“I couldn’t be prouder of all of you in the graduating class of 2020 as well as the teachers and the coaches, and most of all the parents and families, who guided you along the way.
“Graduating is a big achievement under any circumstances,” he told the students.
The ex Illinois state senator continued: “Just as you’ve been looking forward to senior proms and graduation ceremonies – and let’s face it, a whole bunch of parties – the world has been turned upside down by a global pandemic.
“And as much as you love your parents, I bet being stuck at home with them, and playing board games and watching Tiger King on TV is not how you envisioned your senior year.”
