Lauryn Hill began her ‘Ms. Lauryn Hill & Fugees: Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 25th Anniversary Tour’ with a homecoming concert in Newark, New Jersey. Standing on stage in regal attire, Hill performed songs from her iconic album ‘Miseducation’. However, the concert was marred by significant audio issues that hindered her powerful voice. Despite the challenges, Hill managed to captivate the audience with renditions of her popular songs.

One of the highlights of the concert was Hill’s emotional performance of ‘Zion’, a deeply personal song about her decision to continue with her pregnancy despite industry concerns. As she sang, images and home videos of her baby played on giant screens behind her. Hill also delivered wonderful performances of ‘Nothing Even Matters’, ‘Too Good to Be True’, and the title track ‘Miseducation’.

Despite the concert’s late start time and up-tempo versions of some songs, fans still showed their support for Hill. She was joined on stage by her Fugees bandmates, Wyclef Jean and Pras, for a performance of their Grammy-winning hits. Hill expressed her gratitude for the reunion, stating that many people didn’t think it would happen.

While the concert had its flaws, Hill’s fans gave her a passing grade, recognizing the significance of the homecoming performance. The tour will continue with a concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
