Rihanna Pays Tribute to Chadwick Boseman with Uplifting Performance at the Oscars
Rihanna gives an emotional performance at the Oscars 2023.
●13th March 2023
The 95th annual Academy Awards was hosted at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and Rihanna took the stage to present a rousing performance of her Oscar-nominated song, “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, at the awards show.
This performance is a follow-up to her exciting Super Bowl Halftime Show where she revealed that she was pregnant with her second child with A$AP Rocky.
The song is an ode to Black Panther star, Chadwick Boseman, who died from colon cancer in 2020 at the age of 43. It was created by Rihanna, Nigerian singer-songwriter, Tems, Wakanda Forever director, Ryan Coogler, and composer, Ludwig Göransson.
When asked how her voice was feeling ahead of her performance, she replied, “Beautiful. God-given.” The standing ovation that she received at the end of the performance stamps it as a truly uplifting one.
