5x Grammy winner and one of the most notable hip hop, R&B, and fashion/style icons of all time, Ms. Lauryn Hill, has announced The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 25th Anniversary Tour to commemorate her massively influential 1998 debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill an album that was released 25 years ago to the day this coming Friday. MLH will be performing the album, revisiting the musical sentiment and nostalgia that caused it to resonate with so many fans. The 17-date tour will hit arenas around the world, including Fort Worth’s Dickies Arena on Monday, October 30. The Fugees will reunite for their first tour in years to co-headline in Fort Worth.
Ms. Hill explains her thoughts on the album and it’s lasting impact:“The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is and was a love song to my parents, my family, my people, my musical and cultural forebears, my teachers, my loves, my Creator. I wrote love songs and protest songs— (still love songs) about the subjects and interests that inspired and moved me. I was confident that what inspired me would resonate with an audience that had been led to believe that songs of that kind could only live in the past.” She continues “I loved music, I loved people, I truly felt grateful to God for my life, and genuinely blessed to have a platform where I could share wisdom and perspective through music. I felt a charge to challenge the idea that certain kinds of expression and/or certain kinds of people didn’t belong in certain places. I loved showing what could work or happen provided there was imagination, creativity and LOVE leading the way.”
Over the past few months, Ms. Lauryn Hill has been seen in dazzling looks while making select appearances at events across the country in celebration of the anniversary year of the album.
