Pharrell Williams Surprises Students During Graduation Speech With News That He’s Giving Them Internships

The 2019 graduating class of the Harlem Children’s Zone Promise Academy were probably more than a little excited to have musical icon Pharrell Williams as their graduation speaker, but they got an extra surprise when Williams offered them more than some wise words.

In a surprise announcement, the 10-time Grammy winner Pharrell offered all 114 high schoolers graduating from the New York charter school a summer internship.

As tension mounted Williams slowly drew it out, saying calmly:

“So let me be clear: For every member of the 2019 graduating class is guaranteed…an internship waiting for them…you…next summer.”

The students immediately rose to their feet cheering upon hearing the news.

Williams expressed his desire to be part of “a new Harlem Renaissance” and shared a photo of himself with the proud graduates.
