Two decades ago, Ms. Lauryn Hill released her hit solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
Now, she’s celebrating the 20-year anniversary of that album with North American tour that includes a stop in Burnaby at the city’s Festival Lawn in Deer Lake Park.
Hill is best known for being a member of iconic hip-hop group the Fugees, as well as for her critically-acclaimed solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which produced hits such as “Doo Wop (That Thing)” and “Everything is Everything,” and won five Grammy Awards.
“This album chronicled an intimate piece of my young existence,” she said. “It was the summation of most, if not all, of my most hopeful and positive emotions experienced to that date. I Loved and believed deeply in my community’s ability to both Love and heal itself provided it received the right amount of support and encouragement.”
