LONDON, Jan 10 (Reuters) – American singer-songwriter H.E.R., whose Grammy-winning hit “I Can’t Breathe” became an anthem of the Black Lives Matter movement, says she is still amazed at the power of music to inspire, and likes to see young women of color pick up guitars.Fresh from starring as Belle in a tribute to “Beauty and the Beast” for Disney, she has her big-screen film debut coming up in the musical “The Color Purple” – based on the Alice Walker novel that made stars of Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey when it was last filmed by Steven Spielberg in the 1980s.Born Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson, H.E.R. already has five Grammy Awards, a best song Oscar, and nearly two decades of experience performing – despite being only 25.
