Barack Obama celebrated the students that have graduated this year with a message called Dear Class of 2020.
The video runs for four and a half hours and hears speeches from Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Billy Porter, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys, Kelly Rowland, Kevin Durant, Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato, Hasan Minhaj, Janelle Monáe, Yara Shahidi, Taylor Swift, Ciara and Russell Wilson, the cast of Euphoria, Kerry Washington and more.
Dear Class of 2020 is a message to all the students who graduated this year but could not celebrate it due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and follows on from Obama’s virtual town hall video conference in which he discussed the protests against police brutality and George Floyd‘s death.
To celebrate the class of 2020, the video also features performances by Camila Cabello, Chloe X Halle, Lizzo, and Maluma, as well as appearances from the former Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. You can watch Dear Class of 2020 above.
