Muse: Lauryn Hill


Hometown: South Orange, New Jersey

Birthdate: May 26th, 1975

Lauryn Hill has captivated millions of listeners with her soulful sound. Though singing was always her passion, Lauryn originally started out as an actress. She had reoccurring roles on shows like As The World Turns and had a more prominent role in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.

The songstress’ debut solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, released in 1998. Songs like “Ex- Factor”, “To Zion”, “Doo-Wop (That Thing)” earned her multiple award nominations and even a few Grammys.

Though Lauryn Hill stepped back from the music scene to focus on her family, she is making a comeback. In most recent years, Lauryn has headlined at multiple festivals and concerts. The songstress will be featured on the Nina Simone tribute album. Does this mean we’ll get a new album soon? Only time will tell!

THROWBACK: Monica – “The First Night”

Monica was such a positive young role model for the ladies. This song discusses her stance on not giving up the boo-tay on the first night. I loved this fun video and the gap-styled wardrobe. Such good vibes.
