Lady Gaga Delivers Powerful & Passionate Commencement Speech!

Lady Gaga delivered a virtual commencement speech on Sunday that was hosted by YouTube and headlined by Barack & Michelle Obama.

Gaga explained how her original speech reflected on COVID-19 and was written before the death of George Floyd. In her speech she stated "You are watching what is a pivotal moment in this country's evolution. You're watching society change in a deeply important way."

Another powerful message that stuck out in her speech was:

"When I think about racism in America, I imagine a broad forest filled densely with tall trees — trees as old as this country itself, trees that were planted with racist seeds, trees that grew prejudice branches and oppressive leaves and mangled roots. I use the analogue between racism and nature in this country because it's as pervasive and as real as nature. It is some part of everything the light touches, but in this moment, all of us are being invited to challenge that system and think about how to effect real change."

For her full speech, watch below.
