Atlanta -- It was standing room only Friday night at the Tabernacle in Downtown Atlanta. It was graduation time for Ron Clark Academy's Class of 2013.

The crowd had no idea who the guest speaker was until she came out. Poet, Author, Maya Angelou surprised students and their families by suddenly appearing on stage. She then delivered the commencement address.

Angelou challenged students to inspire the world. 

Later during the ceremonies, another surprise:  Singer India Arie walked onto the stage as everyone erupted again in cheers and, in words and song, she encouraged graduates always to remember, "Life is a journey... it's a beautiful day"
