June 5 (UPI) -- YouTube is postponing its Dear Class of 2020 virtual event for this year's graduates.
Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died last week in Minneapolis, Minn., while being restrained by a police officer who knelt on his neck.
Lizzo and Katy Perry will open and close the stream, respectively. Lizzo and the New York Philharmonic will perform "Pomp and Circumstance," while Perry will lead graduates in a ceremonial tassel turn.
The virtual event celebrates graduating seniors amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
