#LoveWontStop for Class of 2020 in commencement music video from School of Music and College of Liberal Arts

Featuring song by Adrian Davis, gospel choir director and doctoral student
May 12, 2020

 

University of Minnesota College of Liberal Arts students who could not "walk" at their commencement ceremony on May 16 due to the COVID-19 pandemic are featured dancing in a music video to "Love Won't Stop", a new song by School of Music Gospel Choir Director and doctoral student Adrian Davis.

Organized by the School of Music, students from across the College submitted videos of themselves celebrating in their caps, gowns, and U of M spirit wear to "Love Won't Stop" along with photos, pets, roommates, and family for inclusion in the final video as a centerpiece of the College of Liberal Arts Online Graduation Ceremony on May 16.

Davis wrote while sheltering in place about "the one thing that definitely hasn't stopped [during COVID-19]...and that's love." He explains his inspiration for the song at the end of the music video and encourages listeners to "...continue to be encouraged. Although we can't get out and go around like we want to, you can have a self-quarantine party right in your own house."
