Oscars: Gael Garcia Bernal, Miguel and Natalia Lafourcade Perform 'Coco's' "Remember Me"

The best original song nominee was written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the power team behind the 'Frozen' soundtrack.

Eugenio Derbez on Sunday took the stage at the 90th Annual Academy Awards to announce the second of the five performances of the night, another song nominated for best original song — "Remember Me" from Coco. Derbez spoke of the movie and described the song as having the power to "bind generations and bring people back to life, literally and figuratively." 

Gael Garcia Bernal stood alone on a darkened stage alongside an acoustic guitar player to start off the song slowly, soon to be joined by a brightly colored stage when Miguel and Natalia Lafourcade took over. Behind them, neon candy skulls from the film danced along to the tune. 

"Remember Me" was written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the power team behind the Frozen soundtrack. 

Coco is an animated film that focuses on a young musician who enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather.
