On October 8 1996, Madonna’s You Must Love Me music video premiered on MTV.
You Must Love Me was released by Warner Bros. as the first single from the Evita soundtrack. The song was written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, and it won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1997.
Madonna filmed the music video for You Must Love Me on 31 August 1996 in California, while she was eight months pregnant with her daughter Lourdes. Madonna stood behind a piano to hide her pregnancy.
You Must Love Me is an achingly beautiful ballad-a song that clearly means so much to Madonna! It’s a song she cries with a deep and searing sadness!
