TCC Playlist: To Zion by Lauryn Hill

Posted in TCC Playlist | Under , , , , , , , , , , , |


On her debut solo album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” Hill rapped and sang about becoming pregnant at the age of 24 when she was still with the multi-platinum hip hop group the Fugees, and being pressured to have an abortion. On the track “To Zion” she sings, “Woe this crazy circumstance/I knew his life deserved a chance/But everybody told me to be smart/Look at your career they said,’Lauryn, baby use your head’/But instead I chose to use my heart.” Hill is now married with six children and has said of deciding to carry her first son to term, “It was a godsend all the way around. 360 degrees of that whole situation were nothing but a blessing. I’m so happy…” Listen to the song “To Zion” and see a picture of Lauryn pregnant with her sixth child here:
