H.E.R. took home the award for Best Original Song at the 2021 Oscars for “Fight for You,” her collaboration with Dernst Emile II and Tiara Thomas from Judas and the Black Messiah.
“I am so, so, so grateful, not only to win but to be a part of such an important, important story,” H.E.R. said in her acceptance speech. “Thank you to the Academy—I’ve always wanted to say that!”
“I have to thank God for giving us these gifts,” she added. “And my parents, my beautiful mother who’s here with me today and my father at home, all those days of listening to Sly & the Family Stone and Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye really paid off, so thank you, Dad.”
“Fight for You” beat fellow nominees “Hear My Voice” from The Trial of the Chicago 7, “Husavik” from Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, “Io Sì (Seen)” from The Life Ahead, and “Speak Now” from One Night in Miami.
