Sara Bareilles To Deliver “In Memoriam” Performance At 89th Annual Oscar Ceremony
Grammy and Tony-nominated singer/songwriter Sara Bareilles is set to deliver a special “In Memoriam” performance at this years, 89th Annual Oscars Ceremony.
This will be the first time Bareilles will have performed on the broadcast. The singer is known for her hit song, “Love Song” from her debut album Little Voice.

“Sara’s unique artistry will honor those we’ve lost in our community including familiar faces and those behind the scenes who have enriched the art of moviemaking,” producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd said.
The In Memoriam segment will also be featured on oscars.com with over 200 filmmakers, artists, and executives in an extended photo gallery.
