*Lauryn Hill is making a graceful come-back on her performance spree. This past weekend, the singer rocked the stage with hits form “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” at the Los Angeles Rock the Bells fest.
Also, she’s letting her fans in on what brought her to be such a great artist in the exclusive film series, “Classic Albums By Classic Artists.”
In a clip, the Grammy award winner shared her thought about what made that album such a headliner.
“I think we understood that [‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’] was going to be landmark, but I don’t think I understood to what degree other people would really be deeply impacted by what was done,” Hill states. “I say all the time, I
make music not necessarily for selfish reasons, but I make the music I want to hear. And when you find that other people want to hear that too, how could you not be excited about that.”
She also elaborated on the different elements the album presented.
“[It was] low and high culture coming together,” used the album as a way to educate people about life lessons and amazing music. “I was excited about taking this music that I thought was beautiful — old school, doo-wop music, cats used to harmonize — just taking that and making something contemporary that my generation could get excited about,” she shares.
