Her husband influenced their daughter to pursue a career in music

Agnes Wilson has been happily married to her husband, Kenny Wilson. Kenny was a musician in the Urban Bushmen Band

Kenny is also the one who introduced his daughter to music at a very young age. 

In an interview, he said that he followed in the footsteps of his grandmother, who used to play piano in the church, and he had made a promise to himself that if he ever had children, he would introduce them to music, teach them to love music just like his grandmother taught him. 

Kenny would listen to different singers with Gabi, and he would teach her to play the guitar, which influenced her in a positive way, and she wanted to be a real artist. 

Kenny used to tell her all those stories and lessons of music, which were fascinating for her, and she thinks they really carried her into this life and into this journey she has now. 

For Kenny, music was a way to connect and bond with his daughter. H.E.R. paid tribute to her father on her Instagram by posting a video where she and her father are seen playing music together. 

She captioned the post as, 

No one ever sees the journey, they only see the success. No one sees the foundation that was built, sometimes broken, over time. If anyone knew what my life would look like today, it was my dad. My dad has missed many many days of working construction to travel with me. He sacrificed so much, so I could live my dream. Buying me my first strat, teaching me the blues, taking me to my gigs, to long days in the studio for so many years. From watching prince and Lenny Kravitz, to performing with Lenny Kravitz and those who were around Prince, my dad saw it all. There comes a point when the little girl you once knew has to go out into the world and apply all the lessons she was taught… I will always have that foundation. Thank you dad for the lessons, for keeping me grounded, and for being my number one fan. I hope to pay it forward. I will continue to honor you and make you proud.

Her bond with her daughter

Agnes has always been supportive of her daughter.

So, as a proud daughter, she honored health workers who were putting their lives at risk serving the patients.
