While winning the Song of the Year award for I Can’t Breathe at the 63rd Grammy Awards, H.E.R. had given a speech that was motivational. She had said that she has “never been so proud to be an artist” and was “so, so grateful” to be the winner. The singer went on to say the award was especially meaningful because “I didn’t imagine that my fear and my pain would turn into impact and possibly turn into change.”
“That’s what this is about. That’s why I write music, that’s why I do this. I thank God for the gift of a voice… and using me as a vessel to create change,” she added. “We are the change we wish to see and that fight that we had in us in summer 2020, keep that same energy,” she finished. She had written the song in response to the death of George Floyd.
This was an inspirational speech that moved her fans. The song, the lyrics are special to all her fans, and that is what makes her a superstar. Join us in wishing her a very happy birthday.
