Lauryn Hill Biography - Redefining Hip Hop
Born in New Jersey, the natural born performer began singing at Harlem's Apollo Theatre in her teens. In 1993 she bagged a lead role in blockbuster Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit alongside Whoopi Goldberg, on the merit of her cut-glass vocal power, before making her mark on the music world as lead singer of hip hop trio The Fugees alongside Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel. The group invoked the spirit of Bob Marley in their distinctive rap music, incorporating elements of reggae, rock and soul into R&B tracks like 'Killing Me Softly', 'No Woman No Cry' and 'Ready or Not' on their sensational sophomore album The Score in 1996.
When The Fugees disbanded in 1997, Lauryn went on to record her debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, often regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time, crammed full of ground-breaking international hits such as 'Ex Factor' and 'Doo-Wop (That Thing)'. The album set a new standard in the world of hip hop and the New Jersey native became the first female in history to take home five Grammy Awards in one year - including gongs for 'Album of the Year', 'Best New Artist', 'Best R&B Song', 'Best Female R&B Vocal Performance' and 'Best R&B Album'.
Her ground-breaking style has helped her retain her status as one of the most important female vocalists and lyricists of all time. Grab your Lauryn Hill tickets now on StubHub and hear her eclectic back catalogue of hits performed live.
