Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson, known professionally as H.E.R., has shared her thoughts about her work experience with Obamas on a new Netflix series, ‘We the People.’
Former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama’s latest Netflix production hits the platform on July 4. ‘We The People’ is an animated music video series that aims to “educate a new generation of young Americans about the power of the people.”
H.E.R. has joined the former US President on We the People, which sees her exploring the importance of educating children through music. The singer mentioned her working experience with Obamas that it’s kind of life-changing.
Here’s what the singer said:
“It was more exciting more than anything, it made me really want to, you know, kill it just because of them being attached and them being a part of it.”
“It’s like, wow, you know, I am a part of something that the Obamas [did]. It’s kind of life-changing, you know?”
She added about the project:
“I would like to believe my generation and younger, we’re going to set the tone for the future and it’s up to us to be informed. I always say, you know, you can’t understand today without understanding yesterday, and so I think kids are going to start being more proactive and not reactive and really take control of our future.
And we’ll learn from those things that we learned in the past, and make a difference and make a change when they know that they can – that they have the power to – and this project is going to empower people. I mean, it empowered me.”
