Still KILLING Us SOFTLY: Happy 37th Birthday LAURYN HILL
Posted On: Friday, 25 May 2012
Iconic singer Lauryn Hill turns 37th today. Come inside and reflect on why you fell in love with her....
She came in the game rocking her natural hair, spitting intellectual lyrics and sporting a beautiful brown-skinned face that turned the heads of millions. With her iconic album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, she struck a cord with fans around the world with her perspectives on social issues, love and self-development.
And though her musical output is slow, Lauryn continues to give back, recently support some education projects in the Dominican Republic. She said,
“I think when you talk about a people being oppressed, it is important to look at who is actively oppressing them and then try to understand why. The amount of effort put into that act is usually a direct reflection of the potential those oppressed people possess and what their contribution could be under other circumstances.”
Keep on giving back Lauryn......and throw an album in there too!
