Life Advice From Liam Payne
Liam Payne had one of the sweetest messages for the graduates. Before giving them a taste of his gorgeous vocals, he had this to say:
“While I was in One Direction, I felt like the world ran away from me a little bit and wasn’t really realizing what was going on in that moment,” he explained, before reminding the young graduates to stay in the present and to be aware of all their words and actions. “You are, without realizing, right in your life story every single day.”
“As long as you remember that and take caution in all your choices, that will make you take implied risks and better yourself,” he concluded.
As if this heartwarming speech wasn’t enough, he also continued by singing his latest collaborative track with Alesso, ‘Midnight’.
But it didn’t end with Liam. The ceremony also witnessed a surprise appearance from none other than the Jonas Brothers. “Congratulations on your virtual campus graduation. I have yet to graduate myself, so you are one step ahead,” Kevin Jonas said. The boys haven’t had a minute to rest because just yesterday, they dropped their latest collab with Karol G. And in a couple of days, we’ll be seeing them perform this number live.
