Filipino-American Grammy winner H.E.R. is on the June cover of Essence magazine.
H.E.R. (Having Everything Revealed) is the moniker of Gabriella Wilson, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter who delivered an industry upset at the Grammys earlier this year. The 22-year-old bagged 5 nominations and won 2 Grammys on her first outing.
She brought home the Grammy for Best R&B Album even without releasing an album. The award was based on H.E.R., a 21-song compilation of her previous releases.
H.E.R.’s second Grammy was for her “Best Part” collaboration with Daniel Caesar.
H.E.R. is now seen on the cover of Essence Magazine as the featured artist. In the interview by Jeannine Amber, H.E.R. revealed her journey to the top of the charts and the Grammys.
H.E.R. revealed in the cover feature that amidst all accolades and awards she received, she treasures most a young girl’s conversation.
“A girl, she came up to me after a show and said, ‘You saved me.’ She told me that she’d been thinking of ending her life, but my songs helped her realize her worth. When I heard that, I almost cried. Like, wow, my music is necessary. I’m doing something right,” H.E.R. shared.
H.E.R. will perform at the 25th Essence Festival on July 6 in a concert featuring history’s biggest legends of Hip Hop & R&B. Essence Festival begins July 5 and will run until July 7 at the Mercedes Benz Superdome.
