Watch Lauryn Hill's Lovely Acoustic Take On "Doo Wop (That Thing)" Live & Direct From Her Living Room
Recently, Lauryn Hill had to cancel a show in Lagos, Nigeria, after a promoter failed to come through with travel arrangements. But that doesn't mean those good people won't be getting any love from the queen. Yesterday, Miss Hill brought together some other lovely voices to offer Nigeria a little musical consolation via the internets, performing a short, but oh so sweet acoustic take of "Doo Wop (That Thing)" live from her living room floor. Read her statement and hit the link to get all of the musical merriments via Okayafrica. Jump back to peep our recap of her recent acoustic sets in NYC.
"Hello Lagos, Nigeria! We are disappointed to report that we will not be performing at tonight’s concert. From our end, we did everything we were supposed to do, including waiting at the airport for many hours, ready to fly out and share the evening with you. Unfortunately, after much effort, the promoter was not able to get all of our travel arrangements taken care of. This prevented us from being able to fly into Nigeria in time to make the concert. We were all very excited to come, and very disappointed that we couldn’t make this one. HOWEVER, we are working to reschedule our appearance ASAP. From what we’ve been told, the promoter intends to honor all tickets sold. Our best to and for Lagos. Love and Blessings!"
