NEW YORK, NY (CNN) – Michelle Obama is helping to give the class of 2020 a prom.
The former first lady’s nonpartisan organization, “When We All Vote” — along with MTV — have announced a virtual prom-a-thon.
The event is being held in an effort to boost the spirits of those students whose graduation ceremonies and proms have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
MTV’s Prom-a-Thon will include surprise celebrity guest appearances and live performances from major artists.
The event has also partnered with the 2020 Prom Challenge, a contest in which students organized creative non-partisan voter registration efforts in the country.
Michelle Obama surprised the student leaders from the 20 winning high schools in a private Zoom call Wednesday.
