Lauryn Hill has influenced many of today’s artists, but few have been more inspired by her than Melanie Fiona. After meeting her after her show in Brooklyn on Tuesday night, the Canadian singer was compelled to write an open letter to the Fugees frontwoman.
She expressed her gratitude and appreciation, while crediting Hill for breaking down barriers and making her the artist she is today.
“My life will never be the same… It will be better… For what I received last night in energy and inspiration will most definitely make me a better artist and woman in this industry,” wrote a humbled Melanie.
