Singer, songwriter and actress Rita Ora will perform the Oscar-nominated song Grateful at the 87th Oscars, show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced today.

“International recording artist, Rita Ora, will make her Oscar stage debut this year. The mixture of her incredible voice and glamour makes a perfect combination for our show” says Zadan and Meron.

Grateful, written by Diane Warren for the film Beyond the Lights, is nominated for Original Song. This marks Warrens seventh Oscar nomination in the category. The four other nominated songs are Everything Is Awesome from The Lego Movie, Glory from Selma, Im Not Gonna Miss You from Glen Campbell…Ill Be Me and Lost Stars from Begin Again.

Ora dominated the U.K. charts with her first and certified platinum album Ora (2012), which included the number one singles “R.I.P.,” “How We Do (Party)” and “Hot Right Now.” Currently featured on the smash single “Black Widow,” with fellow superstar Iggy Azalea, Ora is readying her second full-length album, to be released this spring. She will appear in a number of upcoming films, including the highly anticipated 50 Shades of Grey and Jake Gyllenhaal’s Southpaw to be released in July.

The 87th Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 22, 2015, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
