Lauryn Hill was born in South Orange, New Jersey, on May 26, 1975. A natural performer, Lauryn Hill was singing at Harlem’s Apollo Theater by the age of 13. Soon after, she met Prakazrel “Pras” Michel and his cousin, Wyclef Jean, and the three formed a band focusing on hip-hop, soul and R&B.
Lauryn Hill’s first solo effort, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (1998), established her as a major talent in her own right. The album sold more than 12 million copies and earned the singer-songwriter five Grammys, three American Music Awards, a Billboard Award, a Soul Train Award and an MTV Music Award.
She is sure to bring an outstanding performance to Stubbs this May.
