BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Multiple Grammy Award-winning singer Bette Midler is scheduled to perform at the Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles for the first time next month.

"We are thrilled to have Bette perform on the Oscars for the very first time," telecast producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a joint statement Wednesday. "We believe she will make our Oscar telecast an especially moving evening."

They did not say what Midler will sing during the program.

Ellen DeGeneres is to serve as host of the ceremony, which will honor 2013's best in film. The show will air March 2, live on ABC.
