Singer of hip-hop and American soul, Lauryn Hill is a very talented singer-songwriter. She is now the mother of six children and grandmother with the arrival of Zephaniah Nesta, the newborn of her son, Zion. She owes her fame to the Fujees of which she was the lead singer before the start of her career. Then, she marveled us with her solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which was a huge success..
Born May 25, 1975, in New Jersey, Lauryn has been passionate about singing since she was a child. At a young age, she participates as an actress in a soap opera called As the World Turns and in the movie Sister Act 2. In high school, she meets Pras Michel and Wyclef Jean, who form the essential group “the Fujees . The band released two albums Blunted on Reality in 1994, and The Score in 1996, which will amass more than 17 million copies, making it the best-selling rap album of all time. Then, she continued her dazzling success by launching her solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, in 1998. The Miseducation reached the top spot in the Billboard 200 chart and sold more than 8 million copies. We still remember singles like Doo Wop, That Thing (also ranked first), Ex-Factor, and Everything Is Everything. Thanks to this album, Lauryn wins 5 prizes at the 41st Grammy Awards..
Unsatisfied and disappointed by the music industry, Lauryn Hill decides to gradually fade from the media scene.
I had created this, uh, public persona, this public illusion. And it became, it, uh, it helped me hostage; like I couldn’t be a real person because you’re too afraid of, you know, what your, your public will say. And at that point I had to do some dying and really accept the fact that, look, “this is who I am, and I have to be who I am, and all of us have a right to be who we are, and whenever we submit our will, because our will is a gift, it is given to us, so whenever we submit our will to someone else’s opinion, you know, I mean, a part of us dies.”
His other albums are less successful. She is going through a bad past or she will be sentenced to three months in prison for tax evasion.
At the age of 24, Hills is pregnant with her first child and is a turning point in her life. Many in the music industry advised him to have an abortion, but Hill resisted the pressure. It was a choice she had never regretted, and a dilemma she detailed in the song To Zion.
That song,” she says, “is about the revelation that my son was to me. I had always made decisions for other people, making everybody else happy, and once I had him that was really the first decision that was unpopular for me. It was one that was based on my happiness and not what other people wanted for me or for themselves. And it was the best decision that I could have ever made, because I’m the happiest and healthiest that I have ever been. It also revealed to me which relationships were right, which ones were sincere, and which ones were based on exploiting and hurting me. It was a godsend all the way round – 360 degrees of that whole situation were nothing but a blessing. And I’m so happy that I made the choice that I did. “
In all, Lauryn Hill is the mother of six children, John, Joshua, Zion, Selah, Micah and Sarah, five with Rohan Marley, son of Bob Marley and former football player. The father of the sixth, Micah, is publicly unknown. During this period, she raised her children, wrote poems and advocated for African-American rights..
I did not deliberately abandon my fans, nor did I deliberately abandon any responsibilities, but I did however put my safety, health and freedom and the freedom, safety and health of my family first over all other material concerns! I also embraced my right to resist a system intentionally opposing my right to whole and integral survival. »

Lauryn Hill continues to sing. She participates in festivals all over the world. She has been touring with MLH Caravan since last August. His tour brings together various African artists to demonstrate the cultural liveliness of the continent..
The MLH Caravan allows me to continue the theme of unity and celebration of the many facets of cultural and artistic beauty throughout the African diaspora while on tour this summer and fall. In these days of tension, tumult and transition, an exchange of this kind can yield direction, expression, understanding and empowerment as well as connection, self Love and appreciation that hopefully overflows into our respective communities. »
