Sara Bareilles performs during the 89th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on Feb. 26, 2017 in Hollywood, Calif.

Introduced by a teary-eyed Jennifer Aniston, soon-to-be Broadway star Sara Bareilles performed Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" as the vocal backing to an exceptionally powerful In Memoriam segment at the 2017 Oscars. The piece honored all who the academy and film industry had lost in the past year including singer/actor Prince, socialite and actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, Gene Wilder, Mary Tyler Moore, Debbie Reynolds, her daughter Carrie Fisher and many more.  

Watch the emotional In Memoriam below.
