Speech of the Week: John Legend Commencement Address

This past weekend John Legend was the featured guest on Oprah’s Next Chapter. Besides being a great interview, they showed a clip for the commencement he gave to the 2009 University of Pennsylvania graduating class. Naturally, I had to feature it for my speech of the week.

His speech was centered around truth. He urges the graduates to live their own truth and be committed to the truth in our lives and in the world. Also, since he is a soul singer he adds that they should live their lives with soul. 

It’s a short speech, but worth watching.
