With his sophomore album G I R L officially being released today (March 3rd), Pharrell Williams brought some sunshine to the 86th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony yesterday. The award-winning producer, who was also nominated for Best Original Song at the Oscars, performed his Despicable Me 2 soundtrack and platinum-selling single “Happy”.
He was dressed in his famous Vivienne Westwood “Mountain” hat, with black track jacket and red trainers and literally lit the stage up with his performance of the infectious song as he was joined by a group of high school students and dancers. Pharrell’s new album G I R L is available to download from iTunes right now. Check out his performance of “Happy” below:
