Former South African President Nelson Mandela's daughters Zindziwa and Zenani have been invited to the 86th Academy Awards, where song 'Ordinary Love' from 'Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom' will be performed.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences invited the late anti-apartheid hero's daughters to catch U2's performance of the Oscar-nominated song during the ceremony, reported Deadline.

"This is especially meaningful to us because of how much our father loved watching movies. This song was inspired by the beautiful letters that my father and mother exchanged while he was imprisoned at Robben Island," the gilrs said in a statement.

The award show is slated to take place on March 2.
