H.E.R Is Just One Win Away From EGOT Status Following Win At Children's And Family Emmys

At just 25 years old, H.E.R., is only one win away from achieving EGOT status

At the first Children’s and Family Emmy Awards, R&B songstress H.E.R took home the Outstanding Short Form Program for the Netflix animated series We the People, which she wrote on. With her Emmy win, H.E.R., whose real name is Gabriella Wilson, is only one win away from EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony) status.

In 2021, H.E.R. won the Best Original Song Oscar for the song “Fight For You” from the Judas and the Black Messiah soundtrack. 

H.E.R. is also the recipient of five Grammy Awards, including the 2021 Song Of The Year award for “I Can’t Breathe.” H.E.R. is currently nominated for four awards at 65th Grammys in 2023, including Best Dance/Electronic Recording alongside Kaytranada for their duet “Intimidated.”

A Tony Award win would make H.E.R. only the sixth Black person to attain EGOT status, putting her in an elite category alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Quincy Jones, James Earl Jones and Harry Belafonte.

In the meantime, fans of H.E.R. can see her channel Belle in the live-action musical special Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration, which airs Dec. 15 on ABC
