One of the most storied, chart-topping women in the music industry has just made an announcement that is sure to excite her biggest fans.
According to BET.com, Lauryn Hill (pictured), 41, has announced that she will be going back on tour this summer and fall. The former First Lady of the Fugees supergroup is calling her tour the MLH Caravan Diaspora Calling. The tour is being presented by Tidal and Live Nation and will take place in a whole host of cities.
The concerts on this tour will also feature some of the biggest music artists on the African continent. “The MLH Caravan allows me to continue the theme of unity and celebration of the many facets of cultural and artistic beauty throughout the African Diaspora while on tour this summer and fall,” Hill told BET.
The tour will begin this month in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and will end in Phoenix, Arizona. This past spring, Hill hosted and headlined a music festival, which took place at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York. The theme of this music festival was also centered around the culture and history of the African Diaspora.
Hill also gave a spring performance at the Chastain Amphitheatre in Atlanta, Georgia. Hill’s most recent musical offering in the form of an album came as an EP for the soundtrack of a documentary called What Happened Miss Simone? Six songs were featured on this record and Hill also worked as a producer on the project.
