When U2 performs their Oscar-nominated song ‘Ordinary Love’ at the 2014 Academy Awards this Sunday, Nelson and Winnie Mandela‘s daughters Zindzi and Zenani have accepted an invitation from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences to attend the ceremony.
The song pays tribute to the relationship between Nelson and his second wife, Winnie.
Regarding their decision to attend the event, Zindzi and Zenani said in a statement, “This is especially meaningful to us because of how much our father loved watching movies. This song was inspired by the beautiful letters that my father and mother exchanged while he was imprisoned at RobbenIsland.”
‘Ordinary Love’ will compete for the best original song prize along. The Oscars will air live on ABC Sunday starting at 7 p.m. ET.
