Ms. Lauryn Hill to Perform at the Bryce Jordan Center

Grammy-winning R&B singer and former Fugees member Ms. Lauryn Hill will perform at the Bryce Jordan Center on Sunday, May 4 at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices currently range from $47.50 to $85 and will go on sale this Friday, March 21, 2014 at 10 a.m.

Hill rose to fame as the female vocalist for 90s hip hop group The Fugees, known best for their 1996 Grammy-winning album The Score and their hit single “Killing Me Softly.” After the group disbanded in 1997, Hill began a solo career in 1998 by releasing The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which was recorded at Tuff Gong Studios and featured guest appearances by Carlos Santana, Mary J. Blige, and John Legend. Three singles emerged from this album: “Doo Wop (That Thing),” “Ex-Factor” and “Everything is Everything.”

For her work on The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, Hill took home five Grammys in 1999, including Best New Artist and Album of the Year. In 2002, she released new songs on an MTV Unplugged album, which reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

Since she began recording her solo album, Hill has had six children — five with Bob Marley’s son, Rohan Marley. Recently, she began her comeback tour last year and even released a new single, “Consumerism.”
