Lauryn Hill is an American musician who got her start as a member of the Fugees in the 1990s. She broke out into a solo career in 1998, when she released “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.” At the 1999 Grammys, Hill was nominated for an unprecedented ten awards, a feat that had never before been accomplished by a female artist. She went on to win five Grammys, including Album of the Year.
In the following years, Hill tried her hand at acting and several other endeavors. She became more and more dissatisfied with the music industry, and by 2000 she had begun a self-imposed exile, refusing to give interviews, watch TV or listen to music. In 2004, Hill returned with the Fugees, who broke up again in 2006.
In April 2009, Hill announced plans for a short European tour in July of the same year. However, in June she canceled the entire venture, citing unspecified health reasons.
