“We learned early on in our work with students and families in Akron that education is so much more than academics,” said James in a statement.
“It’s about a shared experience, a journey we’re all on together—students, parents, educators, community members, and everyone around them. With that not being possible right now, we’ve been working to find ways to help families get through this really difficult time. These students have worked incredibly hard for this and there’s no way we can let that go unrecognized. While this won’t be the graduation experience they were supposed to get, we hope we can still give them something special because they deserve it.”
The commercial-free show will be curated by high school students and educators from across the country, with support from the American Federation of Teachers, highlighted by a collection of commencement addresses, celebrity performances and inspirational vignettes.

After her performance, Fallon rushed on stage to greet Karol G and promote her song.
“Omg!” Karol G expressed. “Mom, I’m onJimmy Fallon!”
On Instagram, she later thanked Fallon for the opportunity and “celebrating that my music is breaking language and cultural barriers.”
“Tusa” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart dated November 23. It’s the first song by a female Latin act to debut at No. 1 in three years since Shakira’s “Chantaje” featuring Maluma opened at No. 1 on chart dated November 19, 2016.

After ending 2019 with her latest single “Tusa,” featuring Nicki Minaj, reaching No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songschart, the 28-year-old Colombian singer is ready for her first late-night performance this Friday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Karol G confirmed the news after posting two images on her Instagram account. The first post shows the flyer announcing that she’ll perform “Tusa” and the second is a photo in the green room enjoying a delicious hamburger with fries. “Ready for a late nite session,” she wrote.
“Tusa” became the first song to debut at No. 1 in 2019, and the first song by a female act in a lead role to bow at No. 1 since 2016, when Shakira’s “Chantaje,” featuring Maluma, bowed atop the list. It’s also the first title by two women in a lead role to open atop the chart since its inception in 1986.
