Days after being released from prison, Lauryn Hill is speaking out and showing her appreciation. The Fugees frontwoman has penned a “letter of recognition” to her supporters.

In the handwritten note, which she posted on her blog and later deleted, she thanks everyone who sent her letters, packages, and books while she was serving three months behind bars for tax evasion.

“Know that many of your letters not only touched me, but continued to confirm for me what I already knew but needed to hear again: that sincere expression has a serious purpose,” said a grateful Ms. Hill. “If one of you had been touched, picked up, encouraged, or prevented from succumbing from some measure of social or spiritual decline, then it was worth it.”

She also called out specific individuals for their “words of encouragement and support.”

The 38-year-old singer has been confined to three months of home detention as part of her sentence. According to TMZ, she wants to go on tour from Nov. 15 through Dec. 31. A judge has reportedly granted her request, but she must approve the itinerary with her probation officer.

On the eve of her release, she debuted a new song called “Consumerism” inspired by her recent experiences.
