Ms. Lauryn Hill will head to Texas to perform at Fun Fun Fun Fest next weekend. She’s been added to the lineup as headliner, D’Angelo and The Vanguard, cancelled due to illness.
The tenth annual Fun Fun Fun Fest (FFF Fest) is next weekend November 6-8 in Austin, TX.
This is a rare performance for Ms. Hill, and FFF Fest is her only 2015 Texas date. As a member of The Fugees, Ms. Hill went multi-platinum with the 1996 release, The Score. The Fugees became one of the most prominent rap acts with hit singles “Killing Me Softly,” “Ready or Not,” and “No Woman, No Cry.” In 1998, Ms. Lauryn Hill released her solo debut album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and became the first woman or hip-hop artist to win five Grammy Awards—for album of the year, best new artist, best female R&B performance, best R&B song (“Doo Wop (That Thing)”) and best R&B album. Most recently, Ms. Hill executive produced and recorded six songs for the 2015 release Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone.
