Lauryn Hill acknowledges and thanks her fans for their support with a public letter following her release from prison, having served three months for tax evasion.

As an artist whose voice and lyrics have done so much for so many listeners, the eight-time Grammy winner expresses that the sentiments conveyed by her fans provided her with some key affirmation of the value of her craft. “Know that many of your letters not only touched me, but continued to confirm for me what I already knew but needed to hear again: that sincere expression has a serious purpose,” she writes.

“If one of you had been touched, picked up, encouraged, or prevented from succumbing to some measure of social or Spiritual decline, then it was worth it.”

Fans of Ms Hill will also be pleased to know that the iconic singer and rapper has been permitted to tour for the last six weeks of the year, with three outstanding months of home confinement to commence afterwards in January.

Stay tuned for details on those November/December tourdates and read Lauryn’s full open letter below.
