FC: Lauryn Noelle Hill | Gerly Gurt Iris Velitschinsky

1: Lauryn Hill was born in May 25, 1975, in East Orange, New Jersey. She's an American recording artist, musician, producer and actress. | Her mother (Valerie Hill) was a high school English teacher and her father (Mal Hill) was a computer programmer . Hill was childhood friends with actor Zach Braff and both graduated from Maplewood, New Jersey's Columbia High School in 1993, where Hill was an active student, cheerleader, and performer.

2: Hill met Rohan Marley, a son of reggae legend Bob Marley, who himself was already married. Despite his marriage, Hill and Marley started a family. They have now five children together: Zion David-Nesta Marley (3 August 1997); Selah Marley (12 November 1998); Joshua Marley (January 2002); John Marley (summer 2003) and baby girl Marley (January 2008)

5: The Fugees | The Refugee Camp ("Fugees") formed after Prakazrel "Pras" Michel approached Hill in high school about joining a music group he was creating. Soon after, she met Michel's cousin and fellow Hatian, Wyclef Jean. At some point, Hill was nicknamed "L Boogie", as she began to convert her poetic writing into rap verses. Hill's singing gained worldwide acclaim with the Fugees' remake of "Killing Me Softly with His Song", accompanied by a sample from Rotary Connection's "Memory Band". The Fugees' first album, Blunted on Reality, peaked at #49 on the U.S. Hot 100.

6: The album sold over two million copies worldwide. Blunted on Reality was followed by The Score, a multi-platinum, Grammy-winning album that established two of the three Fugees as international rap stars. Singles from The Score include "Ready or Not", "Fu-Gee-La", "No Woman, No Cry" (made famous by Bob Marley), and "Killing Me Softly" (made famous by Roberta Flack).
