Lauryn Hill to perform at jazz fest

2012-03-22 10:38

Grammy Award-winner Lauryn Hill is set to perform at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival on March 31.

The Turn Your Lights Down Low singer will be live at the Kippies Stage on the final day of the festival.

Organisers were happy to have secured the singer who rose to stardom as the lead singer of rap-soul crew The Fugees, before going solo.

“We are extremely excited about the addition of Miss Lauryn Hill. She is an exceptional artist and festival-goers can expect a sensational show.

“She completes a line-up of world class acts that audiences have come to expect from the festival,” said Rashid Lombard, espAfrika chief executive.

After leaving The Fugees, Hill launched her solo career with the release of her seminal album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which earned her five Grammys including Album of the Year.

Tickets sold-out

All tickets for the festival have been sold out and non-ticket holders have been warned to stay clear of the venue.

“Both public tickets and corporate hospitality tickets are completely sold out,” said Lombard. “Non-ticket holders are urged not to try their luck at the festival gates as there will be no tickets available.”
