Ruben Studdard went from a winner of American Idol to achieving an esteemed distinction at his alma mater.
The “What If” singer announced that he received a Master of Arts degree at Alabama A&M University on Friday (Dec. 11), where he majored in voice studies during his undergrad tenure. “I’m super happy and proud to be a Bulldog #AAMU,” he wrote on Instagram.
Studdard was also in a retrospective mood when he posted another image to his Insta-account, writing “I learned so much in this room. Words can’t even describe how much The Hill #AAMU means to me!!”
