Kate Pearson would kill for a gig like this: This Is Us‘ Chrissy Metz has been slated to sing at the 2020 Oscars, ABC announced Thursday.
The awards ceremony also will include a special appearance by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon bandleader Questlove. This year’s Oscars will be held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood Highland Center in Hollywood, Calif.
Metz will perform “I’m Standing With You,” which is featured in Breakthrough, the 2019 film in which Metz played a devoted, Christian mother whose son miraculously recovers from an accident that left him near death. The song’s music and lyrics are by Diane Warren.
