At the Glamour’s 2022 Women of the Year ritual, which took place in New York City, Este, Danielle, as well as Alana Haim, best known collectively as the Grammy-nominated rock band Haim, managed to bring their trademark charm and wit to the event. They were honored for their contribution to music, pop culture, and sisterhood.

On Tuesday, November 1, 2018, actor Sophie Turner, who is known to be a huge fan of the band Haim, had the distinction of introducing the band to a crowd that included other Women of the Year winners such as Jennifer Hudson and Angela Bassett.

“They will always make you feel welcome, loved, important, and in the presence of something incredibly exceptional,” said Turner of Haim. “They would always make you feel like you’re in the company of something very special.” “Their sisterhood stretches beyond each other and beyond the circle of Haim. And anyone who has ever listened to their music or has had the fortune of seeing them can attest to the fact that they do feel like “honorary Haim sisters.”

During their acceptance speech for the 2022 Woman of the Year Award, Haim took the opportunity to praise their honorary sister. Below is the complete text of Haim’s speech:

Este Haim: We are honestly thrilled to go from opener to honoree in just 8 years! It’s pretty crazy. We were honored to be here then and even more honored to be recognized this year among these other amazing incredible women. Jennifer Hudson, I love you.

We are fortunate to have our parents Donna and Moti here with us tonight. Our parents fostered an environment of respect and learning and taught us how to play music from a very very early age.

They taught us to embrace the way music made us feel and encouraged us to express that through our performances. To quote the great Stevie Nicks: “Play the way you feel it.” I took that very seriously—so seriously that the fans that come to see us live know me for my “bass face.”

If you haven’t been to a Haim show, first of all, shame on you. But if you haven’t encountered my bass face, I can’t do it on the spot. But thankfully, I have a BAFTA and Golden Globe-award nominated sister actress that will give an example of what it looks like when I perform. She’s a method.

Thank you, Alana.

And that’s what I do—that’s how I express myself and I love it. Okay? But there are some people out there that don’t embrace it as much as I do, especially when we were first coming up as an all-female band.

During one of our first big interviews, I was asked by a male journalist if I make the same faces on stage that I make in bed. Yeah, let it sink in. As you can imagine, I was shocked and scared and couldn’t believe that something that I loved and did naturally was being distorted into something it wasn’t. I remember going back on stage the next night and all I could think about was that question that he asked me and how this man from a magazine was picking apart my face. But luckily, the joy of being a musician and a songwriter is that we can take our experiences and turn them into something beautiful. And for that, we are so grateful.

And we did just that. We wrote our song “Man from the Magazine” on our last album. And in turn, every time we play it, it makes us feel stronger on stage.

So if we do anything in our careers, we hope to inspire anyone to pick up an instrument and write about their own experiences and not let anyone deter them from expressing themselves in the way they want to express themselves.

Thank you again for this incredible honor. We will never forget this evening. And congratulations to our fellow honorees, incredible examples of female excellence. And lastly, please vote!
