Dear Class of 2020...
If you missed it YouTube hosted graduation for the class of 2020.
Miley Cyrus recently hosted her own Virtual Graduation and it was a great success, where Miley performed her hit song 'The Climb' and had a showbiz appearance from Oprah Winfrey.
Youtube decided to get in on the action with Former US President Barack and Michell Obama hosting the event.

As has always been true at key moments in history, it’s going to depend on young people to go out there and rewrite what is possible. So, as this year’s graduates prepare for the next stage of what I know will be a remarkable journey, I wanted to give them a few quick pieces of advice: First, do what you think is right, not just what’s convenient or what’s expected or what’s easy. While you have this time, think about the values that matter to you the most. Too many graduates who feel the pressure to immediately start running that race for success skip the step of asking themselves what’s really important. Second, listen to each other, respect each other, and use all that critical thinking you’ve developed from your education to help promote the truth. Finally, even if it all seems broken, have faith in our democracy. Participate—and vote. Don’t fall for the easy cynicism that says nothing can change—or that there’s only one way to bring about change. America has always made progress because young people dared to hope. Your generation is making sure that’s true of our present—and our future, too. I know you can do it—I couldn’t be prouder of all of you.
The event took place on YouTube on Saturday 6th June 2020 with a star-studded lineup featuring a speech from Lady Gaga:
Not forgetting Beyonce who made a speech focusing on The Black Lives Matter Movement:
There was also music performances including the collaboration between Camila Cabello, Khalid, Chris Martin and more who covered U2's 'Beautiful Day'.
Good luck topping that next year!
