For some reason my high school graduation is more memorable to me than the day I graduated from college. Perhaps it's because during my high school graduation we sang several songs that were perfect for the occasion, songs which made that moment extra special. That is indeed the beauty of music, it makes any occasion unforgettable and when you hear a particular song it reminds you of that special moment. To celebrate graduation day, here are several songs to make that day momentous.

Graduation - Vitamin C

I Believe I Can Fly - R. Kelly

What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

Make It Happen - Mariah Carey

The River - Garth Brooks

There You'll Be - Faith Hill

On My Way - Phil Collins

Whenever You Remember - Carrie Underwood

You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban

One of the songs we sang during my high school graduation is something some of you may not have heard of before but it's really such a beautiful song. It's titled "Farewell" and was recorded by Raymond Lauchengco. Here's the lyrics and you can listen to the song here (from YouTube). I couldn't find any music sheets but here's the album.

To all who are graduating - Happy Graduation!
