H.E.R. was already a Grammy winner and now she has an Oscar as well.
The singer took home the award for best original song.
“I am so, so, so grateful,” she said. “Not only for the win, but to be a part of such an important, important story.”
The song, from the film “Judas and the Black Messiah,” has been added to a trove of protest anthems from recent years.
“As long as I’m standing I’m always going to fight for us, I’m always going to fight for my people and fight for what’s right,” the singer said. “I think that’s what music does and I think that’s what storytelling does.”
