'Commencement: Speeches for the Class of 2020' is being released for those students missing graduation due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Update (May 11): Bill and Melinda Gates, Becky G, Freida Pinto, George Lopez, Henry Winkler, John Green, Mary J. Blige, Rita Wilson, Smokey Robinson, T.I., T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert, Apple CEO Tim Cook and news anchor Tom Brokaw have joined the event.
The class of 2020 won't have the opportunity to don graduation robes or receive their diplomas in front of their families and friends, but iHeartMedia has assembled a star-studded slate of commencement speakers to offer up virtual words of wisdom.
Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Fallon, John Legend and a dozen others are recording speeches specifically for current seniors who are missing their graduations due to the coronavirus pandemic. The missives will be available May 15 as part of the iHeart podcast special Commencement: Speeches for the Class of 2020.
