Hill Tapped for Oscars

Faith Hill will perform “There You’ll Be” at the 74th Academy Awards on March 24. Written by Diane Warren for the Pearl Harbor soundtrack, the tune is nominated for best original song. Hill’s recording of the song reached No. 11 on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart last summer. “I’m honored to have been asked to perform Diane’s song on the Oscars,” Hill said in a statement, “and I’m looking forward to being there again.” The country star performed two years ago at the Academy Awards, filling in for Whitney Houston at the last moment. This year’s Oscar show will be carried live on ABC from the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles. 02/27/02
