Several others gave commencement speeches including Lady Gaga, Former President and Mrs. Obama and Beyonce who said, "Congratulations to the class of 2020. You have arrived. Here in the middle of a global crisis, a racial pandemic and worldwide expression outrage at the senseless killing of yet another unarmed black human being. And you still made it. We're so proud of you."
