Lauryn Hill in 1987

Look at this gem that I've found. Lauryn Hill performing at age 13 at The Apollo for Amateur Night. I wonder how the people who were booing felt once this woman became one of the most memorable females in Hip-Hop and R&B. You can even hear a guy yelling at her to "get off the mic"! I've got to say, for a 13 year old, she held some serious composure while that heckling and booing was going on. Many singers might have been completely discouraged after that experience and perhaps given up their dreams. If it wasn't for tenacity, passion, and drive, we would have never been able to experience the beautiful, soulful, and powerful music of Lauryn Hill.

Love, hugs, and kisses,
