Stars Unite to Celebrate and Inspire High School Seniors in Graduate Together Ceremony
On Saturday, celebrities virtually united for the Graduate Together ceremony to honor high school seniors. The event — hosted by XQ Institute, The LeBron James Family Foundation, and The Entertainment Industry Foundation — featured special messages from stars, such as LeBron James, Zendaya, Yara Shahidi, Bad Bunny, and Timothée Chalamet. There were also fun performances by Dua Lipa, Alicia Keys, and Ben Platt and his brothers, as well as the Jonas Brothers and Karol G.
Barack Obama delivered a galvanizing commencement speech and encouraged the graduates to stay motivated. "So, if the world's going to get better, it's going to be up to you," he said. "That realization may be kind of intimidating, but I hope it's also inspiring. With all the challenges this country faces right now, nobody can tell you, 'No, you're too young to understand' or 'This is how it's always been done.' Because with so much uncertainty, with everything suddenly up for grabs, this is your generation's world to shape." Watch all the best moments from the event ahead, and let's give it up for the class of 2020!
