    I am planning on doing a small slideshow for graduation and was wondering what songs to play.
    I thought about: It's a small world, Let them be little. But that's about it.
    If anyone has any ideas I would like for it to be somewhat emotional.
    After I get the songs worked out than I have to figure out how to do the slideshow.

    Thanks so much for your help.

    "Forever Young" Rod Stewart, "I Hope you Dance" Lee Ann Womack, "You Raise me up" Josh Groban...those are the songs I used last year (along w/ those you mentioned...) I also had A Whole New World and Angels Among Us.
    Forever Young is a great song to use though!

    Lots of people seem to like Pooh Corner by Kenny Loggins, too...

    Last year I used Disney's "You Got A Friend In Me" (can't remember if it's from Toy Story or Fox & the Hound). Also "The Magic Of A Smile" (Greg & Steve).

    Vitamin C - Graduation Song (Friends Forever) just about makes me cry. It may be more suitable for older kids though.

    "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong was used as part of a slide show at my children's preschool. It still brings tears to my eyes when I hear it & my children are now in college!

    I suggest going to youtube and watching different graduation and graduation slideshows. I believe that the most common one was vitamin C's graduation but there are some others. You can also usually find a version of most songs on youtube so it works well to preview potential songs... good luck.

    For my 5th grade graduation we sang "The Greatest Love of All" and it was cheesy but it still brings tears to my eyes and takes me right back to 5th grade every time I hear it! We also sang "What a Wonderful World" and it has the same effect. The parents were very emotional.
