H.E.R. made her Emmys debut on Sunday night with a touching tribute to the Hollywood figures we lost over the past year. During the In Memoriam segment, the 23-year-old singer wore a fuchsia Vera Wang dress and performed a passionate rendition of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” while playing the piano and guitar. Throughout the set, a heart-rending slideshow featured pictures of late stars, including Chadwick Boseman, Naya Rivera, Regis Philbin, and Kirk Douglas. This year certainly brought some heartbreaking celebrity deaths, making the performance all the more powerful and resonant. Watch H.E.R.’S poignant staging above.
