Lauryn Hill may be making headlines as a tax evader, but forget all that for a second and focus on one thing: her voice. She's nothing if not accomplished. She won Grammy Awards back-to-back, for her solo debut and as the co-producer of Carlos Santana's Supernatural. She acted as 1/3 of the legendary, always-cherished Fugees. And then she walked away -- shunning the music industry almost entirely. Yet, each time she emerges, that voice and incendiary talent still captivates.
So, you're going to want to check her out when she hits Celebrity Theatre on Wednesday. November 28.
Ms. Lauryn Hill leads this week's pack of just announced shows. Read on for more.
