I also loved “destiny” from Miseducation(im not even sure what the same of it was… but It had a lot of piano and harps playing ..?) I did a praise dance to that song at my church for Black History month and many people were floored in a good way — that says a lot about her soul-stirring music.

Keep dropping the info Afrobella! LOVING IT AS ALWAYS!

Blessings,

Lina

I tell you to this day I still listen to Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. I think the X factor got me through a rough break up.

I miss her. We need more black women in the music industry like her. Chrisette Michelle, Leela James, and Janelle Monae are black women that make great music that are under represented.

As for “Miseducation”, you haven’t been through anything in life if you can’t relate to every note of that album! 10 years ago, when I was in my early 20s, it was the soundtrack of my life. I related so much to Lauryn because we were the same age and she “got” exactly what me & my friends were going through.

I remember viewing the “Unplugged” special and I was struck at the lyrical bravery of this woman–who at the time was pregnant (I beleive it was with child #2 or #3), appeared deeply distressed and had just learned to strum out a few basic chords on a guitar. I was touched, but it strangely felt like a “last appearance”–almost like Nirvana’s “Unplugged”, Kurt Cobain flanked by lillies and the audience quiet and reverent. “Water”, “Adam Lives In Theory” and the clip you posted are my favorites.

I was dismayed when I went to my local beauty shop the next day and all people could talk about was about how Lauryn had “fallen off”.

Just this past Saturday my sister and I had a little get together. At one point she put on Dave Chapelle’s Block Party. Everyone was silent when Lauren performed Killing Me Softly. Everyone on the dvd and everyone at my house lol. And just lat night I was listening to The Fugees The Score.

IF i had to pick favorites they would be Ex Factor, I Used to Love Him, and Nothing Even Matters.

I’m missing her just like I miss Maxwell… I would love to hear some new music from them…

I may not understand Lauryn’s journey; but I believe that the Universe knows best. Lauryn is such a gifted and talented human being; she’ll be back to touch us with her light when the universe deems it necessary.

I still play it and it sounds just as groundbreaking and refreshing.

I’m kind of glad that we’re missing her now. She and Dave Chappelle seem to have taken a similar path when it comes to the showbiz thing. I’m glad she got out when she did, because anymore could have driven her off the edge.

It was beautiful, raw, and everything I needed right at this moment.

My favorite Lauryn performance is “Water” from the UnPlugged show.
She’s so talented and just.. real. I love everything about her.

Despite what anyone says, she still brings it down and shows more true artistry on her bad days than most of these new artists bring at their best.
