Give it up for H.E.R.
At the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, H.E.R. alongside some of music’s greatest legends including Lenny Kravitz, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis brought down the house in a jaw dropping performance.
She opened with a powerful rendition of her song “Damage,” with Jam and Lewis standing beside her, one playing the keyboard, the other on the electric guitar.
After blowing the audience away with the two men behind Janet Jackson’s success and who also served as bandmates in The Time, H.E.R. rushed over to the drums for a rock and roll opening to her song, “We Made It.”
She later shared the stage with four-time Grammy winning rocker Kravitz for a powerful rendition of his 1993 song, Are You Gonna Go My Way. Both H.E.R. and Kravitz blew the audience away with their electrifying guitar solos, with Travis Barker rocking out behind them on drums.
The show stopping performance left the audience in awe, and afterwards the artists were given a standing ovation. Even Keith Urban who came on stage afterwards to announce the Record of the Year paused to praise the performance.
H.E.R. won the award for Best Traditional R&B performance earlier in the evening, after receiving eight nominations for the event.
