Yes, John Legend sings at UPenn Graduation (VIDEO)
John Legend’s (C’99, Counterparts) speech at Penn’s 258th Commencement Ceremony was everything you were
probably hoping for: personal, musical and inspirational:
- Within the first 2 minutes, he sang an alternate version of his hit “All of Me“. At various points in his speech, he worked in his own song lyrics.
- His speech centered around theme of “love” and that “the key to success, happiness, is opening your heart and mind to love.”
- He talked about his upbringing and his inability to shake his passion for music.
This isn’t John’s first time speaking at a Penn graduation. Remember when he spoke at Penn’s 2009 graduation
? Both fantastic speeches.
