Ms. Lauryn Hill, the former member of The Fugees who received five Grammys for her only solo studio album, opens the Twilight Concert series tonight at Pioneer Park in Salt Lake City.
It's been 16 years since the release of "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill," a landmark album, mixing R&B and hip-hop in a way that was fiercely feminist and commercially approachable. It sold an estimated 8 million copies in the United States and spawned the hit singles "Doo Wop (That Thing)," "Ex-Factor" and "Everything Is Everything."
Hill released a live album of new material in 2002, but it wasn't as well-received. That was followed by statements expressing disillusionment with the music industry. After that, a long silence, punctuated by a three-month prison sentence in 2013 for avoiding her income taxes.
