It’s a Will Ferrell renaissance!
Actor-comedian, Will Ferrell, gave the commencement speech at his alma mater USC yesterday, and delighted the students and their families with his comedic stylings. His kids are like super-cute, huh? Man, do they have it made, unless they go into show business. Melissa Rivers feels you, kids.
Will capped off his address by launching into Whitney Houston’s signature song, “I Will Always Love You.” It was a show-stopper. Variety:
Ferrell capped the speech with a not-too-shabby rendition of “I Will Always Love You,” telling graduates to think of him singing it softly into their ear if they ever felt down in their upcoming careers.
From her perch in Diva Songstress Heaven, Whitney must look down upon all of these tired wannabes trying to emulate her on reality singing competitions and long for something fresh, something new, and now she’s got it. He could cut a whole tribute album. Will did Nippy proud. It’s almost like Dolly Parton wrote that song for HIM.
