    Absolutely lovely ❤️❤️❤️. Congratulations class of 2020.

  • Ladykat says:

    Totally awesome!!! CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2020!

    • Stevy Luv says:

      Yup Congratulations to all the Graduates who achieve what thay did

  • Aayden Stevens says:

    This is so good for the kids and family so they still have there graduatetion and everyone stay safe.

  • ed says:

    Well, at least they will learn that the world is not fair and we have to soldier on no matter what….

    • Stevy Luv says:

      Yup Congrats to all for the goals thay made

    • Anne Liesveld says:

      I don’t think thinking the world is 100% fair is even close to the definition of some high school seniors ive seen in my world before. Most are genuinely generious, loving, kind and caring and are hard working too! Leaders in schools, working at jobs, and maybe babysitting younger siblings.

  • St0rm Ranger says:

    These are the true Americans, not the domestic bio terrorist Trumpanzees.

    • Just listen says:

      That make zero sense.

    • Mike S says:


    • Beeg Ames says:

      If you were born in the United States, you are a true American. That’s an unwavering fact.

  • Dittzx says:

    We wish the best for all of you!

  • Just listen says:

    Meh. Don’t care. Just “new normal” propoganda.

    I’d like to know how any graduation is happening at all when schools been cancelled. How’s that work? Everyone gets a trophy isn’t good enough anymore, so now its everyone gets a diploma?

    • E Wat says:


    • vswick says:

      Oh, shut up. 🙄

    • seriously154 says:

      You do know you choose to be unhappy.

    • M.A.R.S. says:

      Hater man…propaganda?

    • Anne Liesveld says:

      School is cancelled but the kids still had responsibilities to homework and to getting tests done and have to somehow do finals. you must have no kids in your life if you think this was a three month sleep catch up time. and to lose the intimacy of friends and seniors watching job market crumble and schools on alert for fall. This isn’t a fun long srping break for kids. I have a nephew and a niece and even through them I see it. and Ive seen my nephew in middle school club ball. You don’t get a 19th place award in league sports. that idea of a participation trophy is a stereotype by adults. FYI if you don’t make it to the third place game in baseball like he did in middle school club baseball you walk past the winners and leave. maybe go to dinner or ice cream store for a consolation prize. They don’t even get a day to celebrate said diploma anyways as majority of restaurants aren’t open.

  • Mike S says:

    Great job singing a war song.

    • Autobot Diva says:

      i was confused myself.

    • Peggy King says:

      They bring music. You bring snark.

    • Anne Liesveld says:

      Its a song about celebrating that our country still stands in spite of those war times and pandemics and gun violence and… it is not about being in war

  • Suki Kom says:


  • Michaela says:

    Congratulations to the class of 2020!!! 🎓🎉 This was incredibly well done by some of the class of 2020!! Once again congratulations!!!

  • popcorn pop says:

    This some amazing WiFi they got.

  • Robert Ivers says:

    Singing the national anthem in a crises academic scamdemic and a Chinese playing piano virtual communism propaganda. If you can’t see it OPEN YOUR EYES. Schools are locked down no saying when students can return safer at home.

    • Marcus King says:

      Bethany Houng, pianist, is an America.

    • Orlando Vargas says:

      Robert Ivers she’s actually an American. Let me know when I should open my eyes again. Class of 2020 rocks!

  • BETTERWORLD SGT0589 says:

    Nice, but let’s hope the Class graduating next year get to do it in the conventional way!

    • Anne Liesveld says:

      Well yes but we need to acknowledge this grade because they aren’t redoing there senior year to lose out on commencement activities and parties and being with teachers for the last time….. and leaving school in messy emotions land. let them have this fun bittersweet year. I agree on 2021 as well

  • BOSSMusic says:

    I remember when our anthem used to mean something. Now we praise corporations and the rich, im sick and disappointed. 😞

    • Deformation Age says:

      What’s a corperateration?

    • BOSSMusic says:

      @Deformation Age Typos Thanks fixed * 😂

  • Jeremy10036 says:

    One of the most beautiful versions of our anthem that I’ve ever heard ❤️🇺🇸

    • Lyn Sly says:

      who’s arrangement are they singing? quite nice & well done, editing & all!

    • Jeremy10036 says:

      @Lyn Sly I wish I knew, it’s lovely 🙂

  • Rosemary Daniel says:

    Great job kids, congratulations to the class of 2020!!!! Now is the time to walk on to your new life, I cried the day my son graduated, only because I didn’t have to hear from the principal anymore about him being the class clown!!

  • Ms Jules says:

    This was excellent. Obama was fantastic. The kids are amazing. Congrats to all.

    • Anne Liesveld says:

      i agree. Im 39 until 5-25-2020 and I learned from his speech. I agree with what he said for there times too. I think it was very sweet but also kind of telling them that they have a real ability to be leaders now.

  • Charlie May says:

    The girl on the piano is like 1é maybe but she is great too

  • Cheryl Coon says:

    How beautiful. Our fate is in their hands…and ours. VOTE LIKE THEIR LIVES DEPEND ON IT.

    • Anne Liesveld says:

      I would assume most will be able to vote by november. I would assume even young kids are 18 by fall. I was 19 as a grad because I was 6 in school.

  • vswick says:

    Congrats class of 2020!!!! 🙌🏽 🎓 Go forth and change the world! 🌎 🌟

  • Tammy Michael says:

    Stunning 🇺🇸🎓

  • quirky_bibliophile 19 says:


  • seriously154 says:

    Angels are singing.

  • Jacob 03 says:

    This is how the national anthem should be sung, not by some pop star putting their own inflection on it. Perfect 🇺🇸

  • Cindy Girl says:


  • Cynthia Szirmai says:

    These kids are going to be alright!

  • _Lauren_ says:


    Shout out to my son that graduates later this month. #classof2020

    • seriously154 says:

      Congratulations to your son and hopes for a blessed future. And congratulations to you.

  • Jontheman says:

  • Cathy Giles says:

    Congratulations class of 2020!

  • Keith Kristynik says:

    Seeing those beautiful young people singing our national anthem truly moved me and gave me hope. They reminded me brighter days are ahead. Congratulations to the class of 2020! The world is yours. Do better with your shot than we did with ours.

    • Anne Liesveld says:

  • Roger - Butter’s human says:

    • Anne Liesveld says:

    For me, this was the heartwarming moment. The beautiful voices in harmony while social distancing. It brought tears.
    It was better than all the money spent on glitzy performers singing the National Anthem & performing the halftime show at any Superbowl!

      Then go outside and walk. People just said stay inside from crowded buildings. Never told to stay inside 24-7. Just to hang tight. Until we have wave past hitting hospitals.
