LAURYN HILL
American singer-songwritter, rapper, recording artist, musician, producer and actress born on May 25th 1975 in South Orange, NJ. Early in her career, she established her reputation as a member of the Fugees. In 1998, she launched her solo career with the release of the commercially successful and critically acclaimed album, "The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill". The recording earned Hill five Grammy Awards, including the coveted album of the year and best new artist.
Following the success of her debut album, Hill largely dropped out of public view, in part due to her displeasure with fame and the music industry. After a four-year hiatus, she released MTV Unplugged No. 2.0, a live recording of "deeply personal songs" performed mostly solo with an acoustic guitar. Today, she avoids publicity, and is the mother of five children with Rohan Marley, the fourth son of reggae musician Bob Marley.
