H.E.R. is halfway to achieving an EGOT in her career after winning the Best Original Song honour at the 93rd Academy Awards. Currently, she has half of the awards needed to achieve the elusive EGOT (the title for winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony).
H.E.R’s song “Fight for You,” a collaboration with Dernst Emile II and Tiara Thomas that featured in “Judas and the Black Messiah” gave her the win at the 93rd Academy Awards.
The 23-year-old musician has also won four Grammy Awards. This year, she won Song of the Year for “I Can’t Breathe” and Best R&B Song for “Better Than I Imagined.” She won in 2019 for Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Album. The “Slide” singer has been nominated for a total of 13 Grammys.

In accepting her Oscar on Sunday, H.E.R. said she did not expect to win the award.
“I am so, so, so grateful, not only to win but to be a part of such an important story. Musicians, filmmakers, I believe we have an opportunity and a responsibility, to tell the truth, and to write history the way that it was, and how it connects us to today, and what we see going on in the world today. I have no words, I’m so, so thankful.” She said
“Knowledge is power, music is power, and as long as I’m standing, I’m always gonna fight for us. I’m always gonna fight for my people and fight for what’s right. I think that’s what music does, and that’s what storytelling does.” She added.
