Miguel took to the stage at last night’s Oscars to perform ‘Remember Me’ alongside Natalia Lafourcade and Gael García Bernal.
Not only did they perform ‘Remember Me’, but the track also won an Oscar for Best Original Song. It beat stiff competition from ‘Mighty River’ (Mudbound), ‘Mystery Of Love’ (Call me By Your Name), ‘Stand Up For Something’ (Marshall), and ‘This Is Me’ (The Greatest Showman).
Check out Miguel, Natalia and Gael’s stunning performance below.
Written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the team behind Frozen’s ‘Let It Go’, ‘Remember Me’ is taken from Disney Pixar’s latest smash hit Coco. The movie, directed by Lee Unkrich and co-directed by Adrian Molina, also won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature.
Coco has become a worldwide sensation thanks to its message and its ability to tug at the heartstrings. The film synopsis reads:
Despite his family’s generations-old ban on music, young Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, he finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead. After meeting a charming trickster named Héctor, the two new friends embark on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
