25 Years of ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’
August 25, 2023
25th August 2023 marks TWENTY FIVE years since the release of one of the most iconic albums of all time – The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
Undoubtedly one of the most influential albums of the 1990s. It was the first hip-hop album to receive an album of the year Grammy Award, and made Ms. Lauryn Hill the first woman to be nominated for 10 Grammy awards in one year and the first woman to win five Grammys in one night!
Ms. Lauryn Hill says, “‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ is and was a love song to my parents, my family, my people, my musical and cultural forebears, my teachers, my loves, my Creator. I wrote love songs and protest songs— (still love songs) about the subjects and interests that inspired and moved me. I was confident that what inspired me would resonate with an audience that had been led to believe that songs of that kind could only live in the past.”
“I loved music, I loved people, I truly felt grateful to God for my life, and genuinely blessed to have a platform where I could share wisdom and perspective through music,” she continues. “I felt a charge to challenge the idea that certain kinds of expression and/or certain kinds of people didn’t belong in certain places. I loved showing what could work or happen provided there was imagination, creativity and LOVE leading the way.”
