A precocious singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, H.E.R. appeared on the cover of Variety in July of 2021 and won five Grammys, and Oscar and Emmy before the age of 26, and released the song “I Can’t Breathe,” inspired by the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, when she was just 23. That song won a Grammy, and her song “Fight for You,” from “Judas and the Black Messiah,” won an Oscar for best original song. She won her Emmy in 2022 for her work on the Netflix animated series “We the People” — leaving her just a Tony Award away from EGOT status.
While prolific earlier in her career, she has released little new music under her own name since her debut 2021 full-length album “Back of My Mind,” although she has collaborated with multiple artists in that time, including Usher on “Risk It All” and Foo Fighters on “The Glass.” She parted ways with original manager Jeff Robinson in 2022.
In December 2022, H.E.R. made her acting debut as Belle in ABC’s “Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration” and in December 2023, she appeared as “Squeak” in the musical film adaptation of “The Color Purple.”
She joins Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Selena Gomez, Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Rodrigo, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, artist Petra Collins, model Miranda Kerr and others on the Lighthouse roster.
