Can’t figure out how to pronounce actor David Oyelowo's name? Allow Brad Pitt to help. He offered a singalong tutorial for a crowd of festival-goers in Palm Springs this weekend before introducing the man who plays Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in "Selma."

Pitt is a producer of the historical drama and was asked to introduce Oyelowo at the annual Palm Springs International Film Festival black-tie gala, where the actor was honored with the Breakthrough Performance Award. Oyelowo has also been nominated for best actor in a drama at this weekend's Golden Globes

If all goes well for Oyelowo, people will be saying his name a whole lot more in the near future.
