There has been a lot of virtual graduations lately as a result of all the social distancing guidelines. Which has made for some pretty special, memorable moments for the class of 2020.
Portland State University graduate Madisen Hallberg was pre-recording the national anthem for her virtual graduation. In the middle of the performance a stranger showed up and asked if he could join her. That stranger turned out to be Emmanuel Henreid. He’s a classically trained singer who performs with the Portland Opera. What a truly amazing moment.
When Madison was asked about what happened she said ““Looking back, I’m so glad that people are touched by what happened. I think it’s important to spread positivity and hope for the future, and I think that’s what two people coming together to sing the anthem can do.”
