H.E.R. put all of her talents on display to close out iHeartRadio Daytime Stage.
Wearing her signature sunglasses and an oversized Prince graphic tee, the 22-year-old singer hit the stage carrying an acoustic guitar to play “Carried Away" in Las Vegas Saturday (September 21). While performing the track, H.E.R. managed to play two additional instruments, taking a break from the guitar to show off her bass-playing skills on a five-string bass before hitting the keyboard.
Next up, H.E.R. performed her fan-favorite track, “Best Part,” and then her beloved single “Fate.” To wrap up her instrument-filled set, the talented songstress brought out an electric guitar to play her instant classic, “Hard Place."
Later in the day, H.E.R. hit the iHeartRadio Music Festival stage at T-Mobile Arena in a sparkly bodysuit and grey pants to perform a few more hits, including "Keep Holding On." She was also joined by a full choir to perform her last song of the evening, Ed Sheeran's "Make It Rain."
Earlier this week, H.E.R. made history becoming the first woman to own her own festival, the Lights on Festival, at just 22-years-old. "I REALLY HAVE MY OWN FESTIVAL, @LIGHTSONFEST!!!!!!!!!!! AND THAT SHIIIIIEEET WAS POPPPPPIIINNNNNNN !!!!!!!!!!!!" she wrote on Instagram. "Wow man. I don’t have any words. But THANK YOU. Thank you to the bosses @jeaninemclean @mmiisshhaa @emperorjefficusceasar This was not easy to create!!! I’m so grateful for my team!!!!!!!!! It exceeded my expectations!!!!!!!!"
