With love, from Dido
Oscar nominee AR Rahman, who will be performing the song If I Rise at the 2011 Annual Academy Awards with Florence Welch, shared a note from singer Dido, who collaborated with Rahman for the soundtrack of Danny Boyle's 127 Hours.
Dido wrote: 'Hello everyone, It's been a month of amazing news for me and now I have some more to share. Me and my husband Rohan are expecting a baby and we're beyond happy and excited about it. So as some of you already know, I won't be able to travel to LA for the Oscars ceremony to perform 'If I rise'. Obviously I'm really gutted about not being there going to the Oscars has literally been a dream of mine since I was about 9 - but I'm absolutely thrilled that the wonderful Florence Welch has agreed to step in and sing the song. I can't wait to hear her sing it as I'm a huge fan of hers and she'll sound amazing. I will definitely be watching the whole thing live on TV and texting Rollo (who is going to be at the ceremony. But not singing... Thankfully.
'Also, me and AR are going to be filming a video for 'If I rise' next week which I'm really looking forward to,' she added.
Incidentally, singer M.I.A, who had collaborated with Rahman in Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire, also could not make it to the Oscars because she had just given birth to her baby.
