About Ms. Lauryn Hill
With music of all genres a
household staple during her childhood, Ms. Hill developed an early and eclectic
appreciation for good music regardless of genre. This early influence helped
her establish her own unique sound: a hybrid of musical influences spanning hip-hop,
jazz, soul, reggae, R&B and even classical.
Ms. Hill has established a
reputation in the music world as a member of The Fugees, whose record sales made
them the second biggest selling R&B act worldwide since Michael Jackson.
She launched her solo career with the release of the commercially successful
and critically acclaimed album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The recording
earned a record-breaking five Grammy Awards.
A believer in giving back, she
has supported school breakfast programs and helped build wells in areas of need
in Africa and other parts of the world.
