With this year’s graduates unable to attend their ceremonies in the flesh, President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama will be the key speakers in a stellar virtual event that will take on deeper meaning when considering recent events. The music comes a distant second to the words as graduates are sent off into an uncertain world.

Still, the musical guests are many and varied, including Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Megan Thee Stallion, BTS, Malumba, Lizzo, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato and more.

Tune in from noon on Saturday, June 6 via Youtube.
