With an astonishing five 2019 Grammy Awards nominations: “Album of the Year,” “Best New Artist,” “Best
R&B Album,” “Best R&B Song (Focus”) and Best R&B Performance ("Best Part” featuring Daniel Caesar)--the beloved H.E.R. is launching “Road To Grammys,” a multi-part online series in partnership with YouTube Music.
The singer just wrapped her sold-out “I Used To Know Her Tour” on Dec. 21 at The Warfield in San Francisco. It marked the second sold-out headlining trek around North America for the talented performer.
H.E.R. continues to garner praise for her live performances that not only highlight her honeyed vocals and self-penned lyrics, but also showcases her skills as a multi-talented musician playing keyboards, drum pad, acoustic and bass guitars.
For the Dec. 14 show at the Novo in Los Angeles, H.E.R. partnered with “WANTED,” a new interactive concert series giving fans worldwide unprecedented access to her live performance.
Presented by MWP Entertainment and MBK Entertainment, this inaugural event was shot in front of a live audience with interactive displays, holograms, multi-camera media players and behind the scenes footage.
In addition to the artist-to-live audience engagement, the concert was available via live stream on multiple platforms, allowing the concert to be enjoyed anywhere and everywhere.
On March 24 and 25, H.E.R. will join previous Grammy winner and fellow 2019 five-time Grammy nominated artist Childish Gambino at the 02 London. Tickets are on sale now at Live Nation.
In 2019, H.E.R will launch “Bring The Noise Foundation, Inc.,” a non-profit organization to serve musicians and underprivileged students by providing them with access to instruments and top tier artists and instructors for mentorship and building self-confidence. The team of experts will offer a fun and fantastic program to provide the best positive learning experience.

Speaking on her dedication to musicianship and providing opportunities for others to hone their talents, H.E.R. states: “For me, music was a passion that soon became my purpose. “Bring The Noise” is going to pave the way for the next generations of musicians, producers, and singer/songwriters, to explore their passion and find their purpose!”
