Lauryn Hill Loses Ability to Talk, Forcing her to Cancel Upcoming Shows

Lauryn Hill’s performances in Philadelphia and Texas have been rescheduled as a result of the continuous vocal challenges she’s been experiencing.

Due to recent vocal strain, the 48-year-old musician has made the decision to postpone her Monday show at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas, ensuring her recovery following a challenging week.

In an Instagram statement written hours before the show, the 8-time Grammy Award winner wrote,

“I fought through the last couple shows, pushing my voice, and masking the injury with medication. This isn’t safe or sustainable,” she continued. “I woke up this morning hoping to have enough voice to get through tonight, but I can barely talk let alone sing or rap.”

One week following the postponement of her Philadelphia show, the R&B sensation, amidst her 25th-anniversary tour celebrating the iconic 1998 album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” has announced the cancellation.

“I need to heal and rest the voice in order to continue the tour. For these reasons, sadly, my doctors have advised me to postpone tonight’s show,” Lauryn explained in the post. “Much love to all of you for your support, and I look forward to coming back to Texas soon.”

The “Ready or Not” singer has not yet announced the rescheduled dates for the shows.

Lauryn Hill recognized as an American singer, rapper, and songwriter, holds an impressive record of eight Grammy Awards for her musical contributions, including her work with The Fugees.

Notably, she stands as the most decorated female rapper in the history of the Grammy Awards. Hill holds the distinction of being the first female hip-hop artist to secure wins in the Grammy categories for Best Rap Album and Best New Artist.

Her groundbreaking solo album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” achieved a remarkable feat by clinching five awards at the 41st Annual Grammy Awards, notably securing Album of the Year—a groundbreaking accomplishment as the first hip hop album to claim this honor. This monumental achievement also set Hill as the youngest black artist to receive this prestigious award.
