He belted out Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” at the end of his commencement address at the University of Southern California on Friday.
“Class of 2017, I just want you to know you will never be alone on whatever path you may choose,” he told students. “If you do have a moment where you feel a little down, just think of the support you have from this great Trojan family and imagine me, literally picture my face, singing this song gently into your ear.”
