Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson
Gabriella Wilson, better known by her stage name H.E.R., is an American singer from California currently signed under RCA Records. In the early years of her career, she kept her identity hidden, which was part of a gimmick that made her a mysterious figure. Born and brought up in California, H.E.R. has been playing music ever since she was a kid. She made her first major appearance in ‘Today Show’ as a 12 years old kid where she covered piano for Alicia Keys during one of her performances. She was then signed by Sony Entertainment at the age of 14 and under the big label, she released her debut single titled ‘Something to Prove’. After taking a hiatus for a few years, she arrived on the musical stage yet again in 2016 with her debut EP titled ‘H.E.R. Volume 1’. Several artists like Rihanna, Usher and Pusha T spread the word around the album and made it a success. After releasing five EPs back to back, in late 2017 she released a compilation album titled ‘H.E.R.’ which received five Grammy award nominations- ‘Best New Artist’ and ‘Album of the Year’.
