Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson AKA H.E.R. (Daughter)
Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson was born and reared in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, to a Filipina American mother and an African American father. She played an Alicia Keys song on the piano for the Today Show and at the legendary Apollo Theater in NYC on September 23, 2007, as Gabi Wilson, at the age of ten, covered Aretha Franklin’s “Freeway of Love.” At the age of nine, she made her acting debut in the Nickelodeon television film School Girls. In 2007, she also appeared on Maury, Good Morning America, and The View. Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment was her manager at the time.
She covered Alicia Keys’ “Fallin'” at the 2010 BET Awards, sang a tribute to Keys at the ASCAP Awards, and competed on Radio Disney’s The Next BIG Thing at the age of 12 with her song “My Music.”
Wilson signed a record deal with Sony’s RCA Records via J Records when she was 14 years old, according to her manager Jeff Robinson’s MBK Entertainment. Under her true identity, she released her first single, “Something to Prove.”
Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson resurfaced with a new persona in late 2016, and on September 9, 2016, she released her debut EP, H.E.R. Vol. 1, which was produced by composer David “Swagg R’Celious” Harris. Usher, Tyrese, Pusha T, and Wyclef Jean all endorsed her, while labelmates Alicia Keys and Bryson Tiller helped spread the word via Twitter co-signs, shoutouts, and re-posts.
Rihanna, a Barbadian singer, shared an Instagram video in April 2017 with H.E.R.’s “Focus” playing in the background. Over 5 million people have watched the video. Issa Rae of HBO’s Insecure, Taraji P. Henson of Empire, Kylie Jenner, and Kendall Jenner all lent their support.
H.E.R. Vol. 1 was named the first of NPR’s “5 Essential R&B Albums You Slept On” list. The song is described as “slow-burning R&B that zooms in on emotional highs and lows,” according to the artist. H.E.R. was listed in Rolling Stone’s “10 Artists You Need To Know” roundup in March 2017.
Forbes called her one of the most powerful women in the world “In the same vein as The Weeknd’s cryptic entrance to the world, H.E.R.’s image remains a mystery,” according to “5 Alternative R&B Artists to Look Out for in 2017.” The irony is that her name is an abbreviation for “Having Everything Revealed.”
Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson’s follow-up EP, H.E.R. Vol. 2 (2017), was released on June 16, 2017, and features the track “Say It Again,” which was also produced by Harris. She completed her first headlining tour, the Lights On Tour, in support of H.E.R. Vol. 2, then went on tour with Bryson Tiller for the Set It Off tour.
On October 20, 2017, she released H.E.R. Vol. 2, The B Sides (2017), which was produced by Harris, and the single “2” on October 13, 2017. On October 20, 2017, the compilation album H.E.R. was released, which included tracks from all three EPs in the series.

H.E.R. was named Songwriter of the Year at the Apple Music Awards on November 30, 2021.
H.E.R. has kept both her past and present personal lives under wraps. She believes that concealing her name allows her to maintain a ‘lonely’ workflow when creating lyrics and working in the studios. She also claims that she doesn’t give a damn about how she looks or dresses. She chooses to keep out of the spotlight because she wants people to assess her solely on the basis of her songs.
She began playing the piano at a young age. As a ‘young black woman playing guitar,’ she got into some problems at first. But she overcomes the challenges and is proud to have become a role model for young people.
