#SlowdownSundays: NPR Tiny Desk Concert with H.E.R.


This Sunday, we sit back and listen to R&B singer H.E.R. as she serenades with her hit singles, Going, Feel A Way, Hard Place, and Focus.

Gabi Wilson, better known by her stage name H.E.R. (Having Everything Revealed) has first built a reputation for her anonymity; her notable visuals of a mysterious woman accessorized with a pair of large, dark sunglasses.

"I feel like this is the era of the anti-star. I really just wanted it to be about music, and get away from, 'Who is she with?' and 'What is she wearing?'.—H.E.R.

Although she kept a mysterious persona, her music turned many into believers, even R&B purists. Her mesmerizing music is a perfect blend of the alternative R&B sound that is popular today, and the traditional one that most feel is a missing piece to the contemporary music scene.

The rising star eventually won the Best R&B Album for her self-titled album H.E.R. at the 61st Grammy Awards held earlier this year.
