Jennifer Lopez made graduation day very special for a lucky group of Staten Island, New York, elementary school students Tuesday. The Puerto Rican star dropped into P.S. 37, a school for autistic children, where she performed “Let’s Get Loud” for a group of eight 10- and 11-year-olds, reports the Associated Press. Teacher Kathy Amati told the AP that after her students saw a video of the song, they wanted to watch it every day, learn the lyrics, and practice Lopez’s dance moves. Inspired, the students wrote letters to Lopez, who was so moved that she decided to come to their graduation.
