Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's "See You Again" became an anthem this year. Not only was it a dope collaboration between two talented artists; it was also a moving tribute to Paul Walker in "Furious 7."
Now, it seems that high school students are giving it another title as THE graduation song of the year. Some are performing covers, while others are remaking the instant classic. Here's a look at how seniors are using the track at their culmination ceremonies:
These Seniors Aced Their Cover
Watch this team of seniors rocking out to "See You Again." They even had their teacher in the front nodding his head and tapping his feet. You gotta love their spirit.
This Young MC Made Up His Own Rhymes
Wiz Khalifa's great, but this aspiring rapper took the stage with his own rhymes. "It's been a long time coming," he rapped. "Yeah, we made it here together, and I'm so proud of it / All the memories shared, and all the people who cared / And all the classes we took helped us be better prepared." Education bars!
This Choir Rocked Puth's Solo Version
Okay, so this choir opted to go with the Wiz-less version of the track, but it still has the spirit of Khalifa's cut. Here, the choir delivers a touching version of Puth's recording that the grads will likely never forget.
This Crew Gave Their Classmates Something To Cheer About
This group started their performance with what looks like a shy demeanor. Hey, that's totally understandable. But by the end of their rendition, parents, teachers and students had to give it up with cheers. Some even gave them a standing ovation. Way to go, grads!
This Trio Made 'See You Again' Their Own
This group added their own flair to "See You Again." The multi-talented MC who is also behind the piano delivered custom rhymes for his peers. "Who knew how we'd etch a legacy, the tassels are proof," he rapped. "Four years of accomplishments, through struggles we grew." These dudes really rocked the house.
"See You Again" was an important song for Wiz Khalifa, Charlie Puth and everyone in the "Fast" family. In April Wiz spoke with MTV News about what the song meant for him.
“To have the responsibility to do the Paul Walker record was really dope,” Wiz said at the time. “I basically thought about what the movie stands for as far as family and the brotherhood, and of course, using the metaphor of the last ride and the last race because of that last scene."
