Country singer Lee Ann Womack has been asked to sing at Maya Angelou’s funeral.

The Grammy Award winner will perform her smash hit “I Hope You Dance,” alongside the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra at Saturday’s service.

The tune is said to have been one of Angelou’s favorite songs.

Dr. Angelou passed away May 28 at the age of 86.

Her funeral will be held at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where she worked as a professor for many years.
