You’d Be Crazy to Miss Ms. Lauryn Hill Tomorrow at Music HallMay 13th, 2013
She burst onto the scene—alongside Wyclef and Pras—in 1996 as one-third of the Fugees, thanks to the trio’s highly acclaimed second album, The Score. With their winning mix of hip-hop, reggae and soul, the Fugees were absolutely huge. But when Ms. Lauryn Hill went solo with the release of the groundbreaking, Grammy-winning The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill two years later, she instantly became one of the biggest names in music all across the globe. Her face was plastered on magazines everywhere, and songs like “Doo Wop (That Thing)” and “Everything Is Everything” were in constant rotation on the radio. Ms. Lauryn Hill, above, doing “Doo Wop (That Thing)” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, recently released “Neurotic Society,” her first new single since Miseducation. And last week, she tweeted: “Hi! Decided to do a last minute show next week in Brooklyn @MusicHallofWB. Wanted to play NS live! –MLH.” In other words, you can see one of the most talented musicians of the past two decades tomorrow night at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
