HAPPY 20TH ANNIVERSARY
Was it her voice, her beauty, her skin, her hair, the lyrics to her songs, her melodies. It was everything.
It was the 90's and I was awestruck by Lauryn Hill. She was rare, poised, her speaking voice was commanding, she spoke with purpose and thought, when she sang her voice was hypnotic.
I listened to this album on repeat for years. Each song represented a pivotal time in my life and each chord evokes fond memories. Her songs are still powerful and relevant today.
The album would go on to receive 10 Grammy nomination and take home 5 awards, making Lauryn Hill the first woman to receive that many nominations and awards in one night. Today, the divine body of work has sold over 19 million copies worldwide.
I was fortunate enough to attend one of the only 20th Anniversary Miseducation of Lauryn Hill concerts in the spring of 2017. The show was brilliant and I left with no voice after singing at the top of my lungs for hours on end. The concert was absolute magic and I left joyful.
Thank you and congratulations. There has not been another album as significant or as memorable to me in the past 20 years. xo LN
