During the Oscars ceremony on Sunday, Beyoncé sang a remarkable rendition of “Be Alive” for the audience.
To get things off, none other than Beyoncé took to the stage to start the 94th Academy Awards (aka the 2022 Oscars) on Sunday night. She sang the song “Be Alive” from the soundtrack of King Richard.
Tonight, Beyoncé performed the opening number at the 2022 Academy Awards. She sang “Be Alive,” a song she wrote for King Richard. Venus and Serena Williams’ childhood training grounds in Compton served as the perfect backdrop for the performance. Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy made a cameo in the performance, which was presented by Venus and Serena. Dancers and an orchestra in tennis ball green accompanied Beyonce.
Tragniew Park Tennis Courts in Compton, California, where Venus and Serena Williams grew up, was the site of the performance. Blue Ivy Carter, Saniyya Sidney, Demi Singleton, actors from the film, and more will also attend at the event.
Beyoncé’s first Oscar nomination came in the category of Best Original Song for “Formation.” Ultimately, “No Time to Die” by Billie Eilish was the victorious theme for James Bond. The Encanto song “Dos Oruguitas” by Lin-Manuel Miranda, sung by Sebastián Yatra, was nominated alongside Beyoncé and Eilish. Both Van Morrison and Reba McEntire’s “Somehow You Do” from Four Good Days were nominated for a Grammy Award.
According to a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Smith, who plays Venus and Serena Williams’ father in the Reinaldo Marcus Green-directed film, spoke about the song’s genesis. After witnessing a screening of the film, Beyoncé’s first idea was triggered by receiving a phone call from the Lemonade artist.
Sebastián Yatra (Encanto), Billie Eilish and Finneas (No Time to Die), and Reba McEntire (A Star Is Born) were among the other performances at this year’s Academy Awards (Four Good Days). Van Morrison (Belfast) was also nominated for Best Original Song, however he was unable to attend the awards ceremony because of his schedule conflicts. The Travis Barker, Sheila E, Robert Glasper, and Adam Blackstone All-Star Band performed as part of the celebrations this year.
