Lauryn Hill performs an acoustic version of "Doo Wop" for the good people of Nigeria.
Lauryn Hill's concert in Lagos got cancelled so she gave the good people of Nigeria the next best thing: a special YouTube performance. Flanked by her legion of backup singers (among whom is her 7-year-old daughter Sarah Marley) and wearing one of the freshest hats in recent memory, Hill delivers an acoustic version of "Doo Wop (That Thing)" off her epic album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. She raps and plays guitar as her backup singers hit some buttery harmonies before unleashing her million dollar voice on the chorus.
In regards to the cancelled Lagos concert, Hill explains in a message posted on her site:
"Hello Lagos, Nigeria! We are disappointed to report that we will not be performing at tonight’s concert. From our end, we did everything we were supposed to do, including waiting at the airport for many hours, ready to fly out and share the evening with you. Unfortunately, after much effort, the promoter was not able to get all of our travel arrangements taken care of. This prevented us from being able to fly into Nigeria in time to make the concert. We were all very excited to come, and very disappointed that we couldn’t make this one. HOWEVER, we are working to reschedule our appearance ASAP. From what we’ve been told, the promoter intends to honor all tickets sold. Our best to and for Lagos. Love and Blessings!
Ms. Lauryn Hill and the MLH band and Production Team”
