At the age of 21, Gabi Wilson, who is affectionately known as H.E.R, won the prestigious Grammy Award for the Best R&B album. December last year, when Grammy announced it official nominees list, H.E.R was nominated for Best New Artist. And here is everything you need to know about the young talented singer.


A Mystery singer

H.E.R is an acronym for “Have Everything Revealed”. The singer, however, keeps secret of her identity, “The mystery is a metaphor for who I am, or who I was at the time of creating the project,” H.E.R said in an interview. She further explained:  “I want women to really feel how honest and vulnerable I am and to understand that they are not alone and that these are all human emotions. I’ll reveal who I am in due time.”


Despite fans have a frenzy about H.E.R real identity, the singer answered in another inter with NPR: “I feel like this is the era of the anti-star. I really just wanted it to be about the music, and get away from ‘Who is she with?’ and ‘What is she wearing?’”

Not only fans but also a famous singer like Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Wyclef Jean also expressed their enthusiasm for the mystery singer.

Surprisingly, H.E.R has a huge and special fan, Barack Obama after her hit “Could’ve been” released.

She would make history in the Grammy Awards

Since 2002, when Alicia Keys won the Best New Artist trophy, there is no female R&B singer to be crowned for the prestigious award. If H.E.R named the Best New Artist at 2019 Grammy Awards, she would make history again.

However, with nominations at Album of the Year, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Performance, Best R&B album, the singer is expected to be a big contender in the Best New Artist list.
