Lauryn Hill was on Live at the Apollo

In 1987, a 13-year-old Lauryn Hill took the stage at the Apolo Theater in New York. Before she started rapping, she was a singer and actress. This was all before she joined The Fugees.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well. A nervous Hill sang on an amateur night. The New Jersey native sang “Who’s Loving You” and some of the people in the crowd weren’t feeling it. She warms up a bit and gets the crowd more involved as she goes on. Year’s later she would go on to become the first female rapper to go diamond.
