Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, so many students across the country have had their graduation ceremonies cancelled.
Now, Facebook and Instagram is bringing together a lineup of stars to help celebrate the big day in an event titled, Graduation2020: Facebook and Instagram Celebrate the Class of 2020 at 11am.
The event will take place on Friday, May 15 and will feature Oprah Winfrey giving a keynote address, with Jennifer Garner, Lil Nas X, Awkwafina and Olympic champion gymnast Simone Biles also speaking. Miley Cyrus will sing her 2009 hit “The Climb.”
“As students head toward graduation, it’s not the day they might have imagined — no processions, no diploma handoffs, no parties,” Marne Levine, Facebook’s VP of global partnerships, business and corporate development, wrote in a blog post. “But graduating is a tremendous achievement, and worth pausing to celebrate even in these circumstances.”
