Maya Rudolph gave the graduation speech for the Tulane class of 2015 on Saturday, and ended the speech with a phenomenal rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner.”
Rudolph’s hilarious speech culminated with an improvised version of the “National Anthem,” where she even mixed in portions of Beyoncé classics.
Take a look here to see her attempt at the National Anthem:
Rudolph has a personal connection to Tulane and paid homage to her father, who was a Tulane class of 1968 graduate. She also gave a nod to her cousin, Sabrina, who’s in the 2015 graduating class.
While the “Saturday Night Live” comedian’s entire speech was characteristically funny, she also took the time to offer some heartfelt advice which was to, “Say yes, and create your own destiny,” as she had done many years ago when she told her dad her dream was to be on “SNL.”
