Lauryn Hill pulled out all the stops for her headlining gig at the 7th Annual Rock the Bells Festival, which took place on Governors Island in New York on Saturday (Aug. 28).
Opening her set with Fugees classic “Fu-Gee-La,” Ms. Hill brought an A-list batch of friends to the stage including Mary J. Blige, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, the oh-so-pregnant Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz, Chris Rock, John Legend, and Fugees’ producer Jerry Wonder. L. Boogs was even joined by her kids for a touching rendition of “To Zion,” dedicated to her first-born.
The annual festival also featured artists including Wu-Tang Clan, A Tribe Called Quest, Snoop Dogg, and more performing their greatest albums in their entirety. Watch some of Ms. Hill’s high-energy set below.
