Seniors may have missed out on the last several weeks of classes and a traditional graduation ceremony, but the upcoming virtual commencement special Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class Of 2020 is here instead to recognize this year's graduates and share some positive words in celebration of their achievements by a number of special guests.

Though students won't be walking down the aisle during the special, they will be treated to a collection of musical performances, inspirational vignettes, and other commencement messages from special guests and celebrities, including former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. While it's not the ceremony students expected, it's certainly one to be remembered.

The Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class Of 2020 is hosted by the LeBron James Family Foundation in collaboration with the XQ Institute and the Entertainment Industry Foundation Partner. Along with Lebron himself, other special guests include the Jonas Brothers, Bad Bunny, H.E.R, Lena Waithe, Pharrell Williams, Malala Yousafzai, David Dobrik, Maren Morris, Zendaya, Olivia Wilde, and Liza Koshy, among others.
