Legendary multi-Grammy winning singer Ms. Lauryn Hill has announced a massive outdoor concert gig at the Irish Independent Park in Cork on June 26.
The artist will perform classic tunes from The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and some other bangers, for Irish fans in 2019.
The New Jersey songstress revolutionised hip-hop and R&B through her soulful hybrid musical approach which transcended genre and earned her fans all over the world.
Ms. Hill became musical from a highly young age, as well as showing a streak for community service and charity work. She acted, danced and was involved in performance art of all kinds from her formative years.
Excelling academically, she attended Columbia University in New York at the same time as joining the up-and-coming band The Fugees. As the lone female in the group, she guided them to achieve record sales.
The band became the biggest selling R&B act worldwide since Michael Jackson, and Ms. Hill then launched her solo career after releasing the commercially successful and critically acclaimed album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
The album deservedly earned her a record-breaking five Grammy awards, and she blazed the trail for female soul and R&B artists in the coming years.
The Cork gig slot comes after confirmed appearances at Nocturne Live at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on June 21 and the Love Supreme Jazz Festival in East Sussex on July 7.
Tickets are priced from €49.90 including booking fee, and are going on sale at 8:30am this Friday, February 15 on www.ticketmaster.ie.
