Commencement Speaker?


As I look out at your bright, shining faces, I ask you to challenge name a singer or musician who would make a good commencement speaker. Who would you like to see give a graduation speech? I envision a set of those artists after 9 a.m.

Here's what we played:

Carole King "Tapestry"

Bruce Springsteen "Growin' Up"

Tom Waits "The Soul of a Man"

Randy Newman "It's a Jungle Out There"

Angélique Kidjo "Once in a Lifetime"
