A Black graduate has gone viral after a video of him leading a group of students singing a Frankie Beverly and Maze classic, “Before I Let Go," rocked the internet.

The choir, draped in yellow and blue graduation gowns, sang and danced alongside the student who belted out the classic. Shortly after the video was posted, people on social media applauded the student for his passionate rendition of the track. 

But of course, Black Twitter couldn’t help but create some hilarious reactions to watching the video. 

"Before I Let Go" is from Frankie Beverly and Maze's 1981 album, Live In New Orleans. Other hits by the R&B/soul band include “Joy And Pain,” “We Are One” and “While I’m Alone.”
