H.E.R. brought “Carried Away” to life on James Corden’s Late Late Show Tuesday evening (Jan. 8).
Short for “Having Everything Revealed,” the abbreviated singer took the audience by storm with the performance from her I Used to Know Her: Part 2 EP. Arriving with her signature hater blockers and acoustic guitar, the 21-year-old was accompanied by her five-piece band.
“Please/I never saw it coming/You wanna take me away/So please/Don’t let it be for nothing before we get carried away,” she harmonized with her background singers. Though this showcase lasted for a brief four minutes, H.E.R. managed to float around the stage displaying her vast knowledge of music.
Starting on the wooden guitar, the “Every Kind Of Way” singer/songwriter traded in the acoustic feel for a wooden electric bass, finishing with a keyboard performance. H.E.R.’s set breathed new life into the audience who marveled at the artistry of these black musicians.
