R&B singer Lauryn Hill wants fans to know she’s still here for them. The music veteran went to social media this week to publicly apologize and explain performing a show three hours late.
Hill went to Twitter last night (February 1) and revealed what sparked her massive delay.
Yesterday, buzz developed about weather playing a role in Hill’s delayed show.
Only a fraction of the audience had stuck around when singer-rapper Lauryn Hill took the stage in Pittsburgh more than three hours late. A disc jockey on the bill, DJ Motormane, tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Hill was at Heinz Hall by 5:30 p.m. to rehearse for Tuesday night’s 8 p.m. show, but that her band apparently was delayed by weather. Motormane played until about 9:30 p.m. followed by musician Paul Beaubrun, before Hill’s DJ took the stage at 10:30 p.m. (The Morning Call)
The setback sparked a few tense reactions from Twitter users.
