LIVE PERFORMANCE: H.E.R | FIGHT FOR YOU (OSCARS 2021) + MAKES HISTORY

Ahead of her recently announced debut album, ‘Back of My Mind,’ H.E.R.’s name has already been printed on the front of 4 GRAMMYs, and now she can add an Academy Award. The 23-year-old entered the 93rd annual Oscars Sunday (April 25) nominated in the Best Original Song category for ‘Fight For You’ – the lead song from the soundtrack of "Judas and the Black Messiah." H.E.R., born Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson, acknowledged her collaborators, D’Mile and Tiara Thomas, too. “The song wouldn’t be what it was without them,” she said. The win marks not only her first Academy Award but also the first time a Black woman nabbed the trophy since Irene Cara grabbed the gold for her 1983 hit, ‘Flashdance…What a Feeling.’
