Sufjan Stevens and St. Vincent Teamed Up at the Oscars to Make Us All Cry
By: Patrick Hosken

Onstage in concert, Sufjan Stevens strives to make the stage his playground, often donning neon outfits and massive angel wings for his performances. The grandeur complements his intimate music, which frequently blooms into sheer grandeur from tiny moments.

And at the 2018 Oscars, Stevens had to keep it a little more conservative, style wise. No angel wings, but he recruited pals St. Vincent, bluegrass experimentalist Chris Thile (of Punch Brothers), folk-R&B maestro Moses Sumney, and others for a beautiful and lightly whimsical rendition of his aching “Mystery of Love,” from Call Me By Your Name.
