Watch Legendary Band 'Earth, Wind and Fire' Congratulating 2020 Graduates with Golden Advices
Iconic music group Earth, Wind & Fire congratulates the class of 2020 as they graduate amid such uncertain times. The group provided graduates with messages of inspiration to keep them motivated to reach for their dreams.
The Class of 2020 just graduated in such a unique way, as a lot of them didn't get to experience the traditional graduation ceremony. Instead, their diplomas were either mailed to them, or they graduated virtually.
To boost the morale of the graduates who are about to venture into the unknown, Earth, Wind & Fire members shared a compiled video of their messages for them. Their messages included words of motivation and inspiration for them to power through.
CELEBRATING CLASS OF 2020
Although they've been a group for more than 40 decades now, Earth, Wind & Fire songs continue to resonate with millions around the world. Their top hits include "Shining Star," "Devotion," After the Love Is Gone," "September," and a whole lot more.
Barack and Michelle Obama embraced the "new normal" and announced their part in a virtual commencement speech for 2020 high school and college graduating seniors.

#FBF "The path from starting a band to rock-and-roll stardom is simultaneously complicated, rewarding, often disappointing, and glorious. The corporate suits would say your record is doing great or your it's a flop or your record sold this number of units this week—blah, blah, blah. I was trained to remain neutral and not to respond either positively or negatively. Chess Records had burned a stone-faced coolness in my psyche. The audience’s response was my only true barometer for how Earth, Wind & Fire was doing." —Maurice White ✨
Their songs became anthems in every celebration, and of course, graduations are one of them. Now, they didn't waste any time to greet the Class of 2020, who can dance the night away with their loved ones while they celebrate at home.
A SPECIAL GRADUATION
Recently, Barack and Michelle Obama embraced the "new normal" and announced their part in a virtual commencement speech for 2020 high school and college graduating seniors. The couple confirmed that they are set to take part in a nationwide commencement exercise that aims to celebrate the accomplishments of the graduating class.
The address is set to take place on June 6, 2020, via YouTube, and will include speeches from the Obamas, BTS, Lady Gaga, Secretary Robert M. Gates, Sundar Pichai, Secretary Condoleeza Rice, and Malala Yousafzai.
A NEW CHAPTER
It will also include appearances by AsapSCIENCE, Alicia Keys, Chloe x Halle, Dude Perfect, Jackie Aina, Kelly Rowland, Mr. Kate, The Try Guys, Zane Hijazi, Zendaya, and Kerry Washington. Such organized commencement exercises are made so as not to downplay the hard work that graduates put in, despite being in such uncertain situations.

To the #Classof2020, I know how hard you all have worked to make it to graduation. You’ve put in long hours studying. You’ve thrown yourself into extracurricular activities and after-school jobs. And you’ve done everything you can to be there for your friends through it all. Some of you will be the first in your families to graduate from high school or college, making this occasion all the more special. And I know that none of you imagined you would be closing this chapter of your life through a computer or phone screen. But I still want to make sure you still get the celebration you deserve. That’s why, through my @reachhigher Initiative, I’m working with @youtube Originals to host a special virtual graduation for you on June 6th. Whether you’re graduating from high school, college, or any other kind of school––we want you, your family, and all of your loved ones to be a part of this celebration. And we want to do this right for all of you, so I’ll be inviting some very special guests—including @BarackObama—to help ring in this momentous day. RSVP here bit.ly/RHGraduation and then tune in on June 6th at yt.be/classof2020. #ReachHigher
