Will Ferrell’s commencement address for the University of Southern California back in May was impressive, to say the least. The 50-year-old surprised everybody when he decided to sing his own rendition of Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You. It was so touching that the performance is still on everyone’s lips!
During his The Graham Norton Show appearance, Will talked about his speech to remember, revealing the fact that he sent all of the students graduating off with a musical moment.
‘I had not been put in that position before because usually I just make fun of things. I told them to keep their feet firmly planted on the ground and reach for the stars – which I read on the back of a cereal box,’ the man stated.
But that was not all – the actor wanted to also inspire those present as well as the entire internet with his singing.
‘I started thinking, ‘Do I sing a couple of lines or do I torture the students and their parents by singing the entire song?’ and I chose the latter,’ Farrell revealed.
The star was in fact acknowledged with an honorary doctorate in humane letters for his efforts.
‘They say it is honorary, I think it is for real,’ the actor joked.
