H.E.R. will take the stage at the 2021 People’s Choice Awards on Tuesday (Dec. 7) to perform a tribute to the life and legacy of Motown legend Marvin Gaye. This year marks the 50th anniversary of his landmark album What’s Going On.
H.E.R. has had a tremendous year. In March she won a Grammy for song of the year for co-writing “I Can’t Breathe.” In April, she won an Oscar for best original song for co-writing “Fight for You” from Judas and the Black Messiah and performed that song on the Oscar telecast. In November, she was nominated for eight Grammys, including album and song of the year.
Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera are also set to perform on the People’s Choice Awards, which will be hosted by Kenan Thompson. The show will air simultaneously on NBC and E! for the first time, after airing only on E! the last three years. From 1975-2017, the show aired on CBS.
