Hector Echevarria sings "You Raise Me Up" at the graduation for Reading Senior High School.

Hector Echevarria, a senior at Reading Senior High School who's attending Albright College in the fall, sang Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up" (written and originally performed by Secret Garden) during the school’s graduation ceremony at Santander Arena on Tuesday. And, to put it bluntly, he killed it. The school put the video of Echevarria's performance on Facebook and YouTube, putting his vocal skills on display for the interwebs to enjoy. It's a beautiful performance, and potentially tear-inducing  if you're graduating with the class of 2016 (so if you are, you might want to get some tissues ready before watching).
