"I Was Here" by Chelsi E. Green (2013)

Cover of Beyonce's "I Was Here" performed by Chelsi E. Green '13, a Ronald E. McNair Scholar, as a tribute to MIT Class of 2013

As you very well know, I love to sing. Though I don't know if I was ever to fully able to express the magnitude and depth of my love for MIT to you, I truly love MIT. This cover allowed me to express that love, and hopefully it will provide a sliver of insight, for those both outside and inside of our community, into how fulfilling one's experience at MIT can be. MIT has done so much for me, and it brought me so much joy to use my talents for MIT, one last time. I hope you enjoy it.
