It’s been almost 18 years since Lauryn Hill dropped her legendary album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”. Since the debut it seems as if her career has had a downward, slow spiral. For Lauryn Hill lovers, Pittsburgh got a small dose of her strange behavior at a May 11 concert in Homestead.

While the concert started at 8 PM, The Fugees singer hit the stage at 9:58 PM. The dimly-lit candles, dark lighting, and long-winded opening ballad were just some of the initial indicators that we were in for a bizarre evening. The random sound checks and clear rehearsal moments were strange. Her dancing was strange. It was overall a peculiar series of events.

Good news is the show got better as it progressed. Lauryn Hill sounded amazing! Most importantly, the voice that we so intimately adored since “Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit” (1993) has aged like fine wine. Her voice is grittier, raspier and magically beautiful.
