John Legend Gives Moving Commencement Speech at University of Pennsylvania - Watch Now

John Legend stands on stage in his commencement robes as he receives an honorary Doctor of Music degree during University of Pennsylvania’s 258th Commencement ceremony held at Franklin Field on Monday (May 19) in Philadelphia, Penn.

The 35-year-old entertainer received support from his wife Chrissy Teigen, who was spotted walking barefoot out of the ceremony.

“I fell in love with music at a very young age,” John, who graduated from the University back in 1999, told the crowd. “We’re taught when we’re young that the opposite of love is hate, but it’s not. Hate is a byproduct, hate is a result. Being a hater isn’t cool — nobody wants that. But hate comes from one thing: fear. Fear is the opposite of love.”

He also sang a parody of “All of Me” for the crowd of graduates. Check it out below.

The guy in the striped shirt in picture number 3; the look on his face just about says it all.

I never was a fan of his music, but John Legend was amazing at our commencement this year. He seems like a wonderful man.
