H.E.R.’s Electric Guitar Solo With Usher During the Super Bowl Halftime Show
Written by Site Hub on February 12, 2024
Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson, known professionally as H.E.R., delivered an electric guitar solo alongside Usher at the 2024 Super Bowl halftime show. Contrary to some social media users’ misidentification, the performer was not North West, but the 26-year-old H.E.R., an accomplished artist one award shy of achieving the prestigious EGOT status. With five Grammy Awards, an Academy Award for Best Original Song, and a Children’s and Family Emmy Award under her belt, H.E.R. only needs a Tony Award to complete the EGOT circle, a feat hinted at being within reach given her acclaimed performance as Belle in ABC’s “Beauty and the Beast” anniversary special.
H.E.R.’s diverse career extends beyond R&B, with nominations and performances across genres and platforms, including a CMT Award nomination and notable appearances on “Saturday Night Live” and in “The Color Purple.” Social media reactions praised H.E.R.’s talent and versatility, with comparisons to Prince and accolades for her full-circle moment from singing the National Anthem at a 49ers game to the Super Bowl stage.
