Questlove Has Been Approved As The Musical Director For The Oscars

Questlove becomes approved as the musical director for the anticipated Academy Awards, The Oscars. Many fans are excited about the huge news and we’re very happy for Questlove.

This year’s 93rd annual Oscars will be premiering live on April 25, and surprisingly the organizers of the event will be allowing guests and presenters to attend the ceremony in person during this COVID-19 pandemic. Dream Hampton will also be working alongside Questlove to add her flavor to the mix.

Questlove took to social media to celebrate in the most modest way on Wednesday (March 24th) and wrote, “New Job Alert.”

2021 has been THE year for Questlove

So far into the year, Questlove has celebrated his two major wins at the Sundance Film Festival for his directorial debut Summer of Love and the announcement of a documentary on Sly Stone he’ll soon be teaming up with Common on to bring to life.

Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) was pivoted towards the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival and earned both the audience and grand jury prize in the U.S. documentary section at Sundance in February.

Career

Questlove is also a musical director for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, in which The Roots play as the house band. He’s also held musical directing positions for artists such as D’Angelo, Eminem, and Jay Z

Questlove has won five Grammys — three as a member of The Roots, one as a producer of Booker T. Jones’ The Road From Memphis (best pop instrumental album, 2011), and one as a producer of Hamilton (best musical theater album, 2015).

“It has always been a dream of mine to direct films and telling this story has truly been an amazing experience. I am overwhelmed and honored by the reception the film is receiving,” Questlove wrote.
