iHeartMedia has announced a new project and podcast titled “Commencement: Speeches for the Class of 2020.”
The campaign will feature prerecorded commencement speeches from musicians like John Legend, Halsey, Tim McGraw, Kesha, DJ Khaled, Pitbull, and Khalid.
Jimmy Fallon, Hillary Clinton, Eli Manning, and many more also plan to record speeches.
The podcast is dedicated to all of the graduating classes of 2020 that will miss commencement ceremonies due to the coronavirus pandemic. The series will publish all the speeches on May 15, two days ahead of National Graduation Day.
“Speeches for the Class Of 2020 brings together some of the most-experienced and inspiring people in the country today to celebrate the resilience, strength, and accomplishments of this year’s graduates,” said Conal Byrne, president of the iHeartPodcast Network.
He added, “These are the speakers our graduates would have had at their real-world ceremonies if not for current circumstances.”
