Cited as one of the greatest female MCs of all time, Ms. Lauryn Hill’s prolific rhymes and powerful voice catapulted her into the public eye as a member of the Fugees. The band’s 1996 album, The Score, was certified six times platinum and took home two GRAMMY Awards for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal and Best Rap Album.

In 1998, as a solo artist, Ms. Hill established herself as a creative force with her now classic debut, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The iconic work earned Ms. Hill a record-setting 10 GRAMMY Award nominations and she took home five, including Best New Artist and Album of the Year. The album was also nominated in several categories at the NAACP Image Awards, including Outstanding Female Artist, Outstanding Album, and Outstanding Song for both “Doo Wop (That Thing)” and “A Rose Is Still A Rose.”  To date The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill has sold 8 million copies worldwide.

On her recent tour, Ms. Hill has performed an innovative set list of classic material, evolved but faithful to the rigor, soulfulness and power of the original music from her iconic and groundbreaking solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill as well as classic Fugee numbers and a few covers honoring some of the music that Ms. Hill grew up influenced by.

Co-star of PEEPSHOW and Holly’s World, Josh Strickland was spotted enjoying the show tonight.

The Boulevard Pool is a multilevel pool experience by day and an intimate outdoor concert venue with unobstructed sightlines of both the stage and The Strip by night. For more information please call 702.698.7000.
