Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill (born May 26, 1975) is an American hip hop singer, initially establishing her reputation as the most visible and vocal member of The Fugees. She was born in South Orange, New Jersey and began singing and acting at a very young age. Her acting roles included the TV show As the World Turns (as "Kira Johnson" in 1991), and the film Sister Act II: Back in the Habit, the latter of which showcased her vocal abilities. Though the Fugees had originally formed in 1988, Hill's membership was disrupted by her acting and her education at Columbia University. The Fugees' first album, Blunted on Reality, was much-hyped but fell far short of expectations. This was followed by The Score, a multi-platinum selling album that established all three Fugees (Hill, Pras Michel and Wyclef Jean) as international successes.

Hill's other acting work includes the television series "King of the Hill" (as "Arletta the Elevator Operator"), the play "Club 127," and the motion pictures Hav Plenty (1997) and Restaurant (1998). She appeared as a singer in the soundtracks for Conspiracy Theory in 1997 on the track, "Can't take My Eyes Off of You," and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood in 2001 on the "Selah" track.

In 1998, Hill released The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, a critical smash hit that ended up on numerous best-of lists for the year, decade and all time. Among the singles on the album was "Doo Wop (That Thing)." In 1999's Grammy Awards, Hill was nominated eleven times and won Album of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Album, setting a new record for a female performer. The album's title was inspired by Carter G. Woodson's book, The Miseducation of the Negro.

Soon after, Hill and her recording company were sued by Vada Nobles, Rasheem Pugh, Johari Newton and Tejumold Newton, known as "New Ark Entertainment," who claimed to have been denied full credit and compensation for their assistance on the album. They received an undisclosed amount of money and were given credit for drum programming and a small amount of lyrical, instrumental and production work.

Hill is noted as a humanitarian, and in 1996 she received an Essence Award for work which has included the 1996 founding of the Refugee Project, an outreach organization that supports a two-week overnight camp for at-risk youth, and for supporting well-building projects in Kenya and Uganda, as well as for staging a rap concert in Harlem to promote voter registration. In 1999 Hill received three awards at the 30th Annual NAACP Image Awards held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California. She was named with Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. and others among the "10 For Tomorrow," in the EBONY 2000: Special Millennium Issue. In 1999 Ebony magazine named her one of "100+ Most Influential Black Americans."

In 1996, a call to the Howard Stern radio show stated that the caller heard Hill say "I would rather die than have a white person buy one of my albums" during an MTV interview. This is considered unlikely, however, as no recording could be found of the supposed incident. [1] (http://www.snopes.com/quotes/lauryn.htm)

Though a Fugees reunion was discussed by all of the members of the group, it has not yet happened, reportedly due to conflicts between the three Fugees, including a much-rumored feud between Hill and Wyclef Jean. Hill released an MTV Unplugged album laced with verbal interludes in 2002 to mixed reviews.

On December 13, 2003, Hill shocked officials at the Vatican by denouncing them for "corruption, exploitation, and abuses," apparently in reference to allegations of the child molestation of boys by Catholic officials in the United States of America and the cover-up of offenses by Catholic Church officials. Among those in attendance were Edmund Cardinal Szoka, American-born President of the Pontifical Commission for Vatican City, and President of the Governatorate of Vatican City. Two days later Pope John Paul II told a group of Bishops from Sudan that, "Scandalous behavior must at all times be investigated, confronted and corrected" in the Catholic Church.

Hill has four children by her husband, retired (American) football player Rohan Marley, son of the late reggae artist, Bob Marley: Zion David Marley, born 1997, Selah Louise Marley, born 1998, and second son Joshua, born 2002. A fourth child was born in 2003.

Hill's nickname is "L-boogie."

The three Fugees were reunited on September 18, 2004 at Dave Chappelle's Block Party in Brooklyn, New York. They headlined a bill that included a star-studded cast of who's who in hip hop, including Kanye West, Common, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and others.

The Fugees' first album, Blunted on Reality, was much-hyped but fell far short of expectations. When these two elements become married in our lives, then we are truly in the image of God.

Though the Fugees had originally formed in 1988, Hill's membership was disrupted by her acting and her education at Columbia University. Neither of these two elements works properly on it's own. Her acting roles included the TV show As the World Turns (as "Kira Johnson" in 1991), and the film Sister Act II: Back in the Habit, the latter of which showcased her vocal abilities. These two elements take on many names including: good and truth, faith and charity, will and understanding, thoughts and affections, love and wisdom, masculine and feminine, intellect and compassion. She was born in South Orange, New Jersey and began singing and acting at a very young age. It teaches about the eternity of Heaven and Hell, the eternity and importance of true marriage love between one man and one woman, and the importance of a life of useful service.

This religion teaches that the Lord's second coming happens for all of us when His Divine Truth is born again in our hearts, minds, and lives.

It teaches that God took on the natural human form of Jesus in order to show us that we can have a personal relationship with Him, and to open the communication between heaven and earth so that we can be enlightened again. Who is in essence, Divine Love and Wisdom. It is a Christian Church that believes in One Human God Who is knowable, personal, and loving. Solomon was born and raised in the General Church of the New Jerusalem (http://www.newchurch.org); a branch of the New Church, sometimes known as Swedenborgian.

In 2005, Solomon successfully completed - with Honor Student Recognition - a course in Recording Engineering from the Audio Institute of America. He then attended four years of college at [Bryn Athyn College of the New Church (http://www.brynathyn.edu)], and received an Interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Religion. He attended third grade through 10th grade at the Kempton New Church School. For his last two years of high school he was part of a group homeschooling program called ASPIRE (Alternative Schooling Inspiring Real Education). Solomon grew up in Kempton, Pennsylvania.

My favorite color is blue-green, my favorite animal is the turtle, my favorite food is breakfast.". Someday my wife and I are going to write a book about marriage. I've started writing a novel about time travel. I love well-written epic fantasy stories.

Tolkien fan, as well as a huge Star Wars fan. R. R. I'm a huge J. "When I'm not actively engaged in music or being a husband and father, my other interests include drawing and painting, juggling, sailing, Lego, and reading.

Solomon's wife, Tirah, who also comes from a musical family, has a wonderful voice, and has written several songs of her own. Solomon and Roxanne have composed a number of pieces for flute and piano, which they intend to record. One piece, which they call "Trio" is a flute, recorder, and piano piece written by Solomon and both of his sisters. Solomon's mom, Roxanne and Tamar have also composed some solo piano pieces. They get to see each other often, and are all still very close. Solomon has two sisters: Roxanne and Tamar; both are married with kids.

They have a daughter, Thea Clarity, born on February 2, 2003 and a son, Cirdan Ewan, born on June 13, 2004. They live in Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania; a little town, about a half an hour west of Allentown, Pennsylvania. Their Wedding March, entitled "Angel's Birth," was a piece that Solomon composed. "We met in college when we found we had the same astrological sign (Pisces) and started laughing at the horoscope page together when we read the newspaper in dining hall." They fell in love and were married on June 24, 2001. Solomon is married to Tirah Marie Echols Keal.

I played it over and over until I mastered it, I still love that piece." [[6] (http://www.vinceguaraldi.com)]. I was probably in my early teens when one of my mom's cousins, Tom Rose, taught me how to play "Linus and Lucy," that famous Vince Guaraldi theme to the Charlie Brown cartoon. Film composers have also been a great source of inspiration for Solomon's music, especially composers that use piano, such as James Horner [[5] (http://www.james-horner.com)] "I remember one specific event in my life that was a huge influence on my love of playing the piano. George Winston's music especially inspired Solomon, and assured him of the simple and powerful beauty of solo piano.[[2] (http://www.georgewinston.com)] [[3] (http://www.windham.com)] [[4] (http://www.amgram.com)].

Specifically, the music of George Winston of Windham Hill, and Chip Davis of American Gramaphone. His dad was the one who introduced him to two music labels which greatly influenced Solomon: Windham Hill Records, and American Gramaphone. Ian has excellent taste in everything from Classical music to Rock music. His dad plays guitar, but his primary influence on Solomon was in the area of recorded music.

It was through his mom that Solomon learned to love pianists like Scott Joplin, Hagood Hardy, and John Odhner. She frequently plays for [church (http://www.newchurch.org)] services, and has her own small business as a piano teacher. His mom plays the piano and the guitar. His parents, Ian and Wellesley Keal, have been a large influence in Solomon's musical background.

Talent of any kind is a God-given gift, and I thank the Lord for the privilege to compose music."[[1] (http://www.solomonkeal.com)]. When I play some of the pieces I've written, I can't help but feel that I was not the only author. "Composing is both a powerful and humbling experience. Recently he's been teaching himself more about jazz piano.

Solomon is a Songwriter as well, and writes mostly Country music and Christian music songs, as well as some love songs with his wife Tirah. But, he has also co-written pieces for flute and piano with his sister, Roxanne. Mostly, Solomon plays solo piano. The process of "coming of age" gave him a need to express himself, which he did most effectively through the piano.

The intellectual and artistic stimulation brought about a surge of creativity. His years in college were by far the most fruitful for composition. In 1993, when Solomon was 16, he composed his first piano piece entitled: "Thunderstorm." Since that time, he has written, on average, about 5 or 6 pieces a year. He learned the feel of music.

He learned what made a song sound good. It was a challange that he still loves. His love of music never disappeared and he loved trying to figure out how to play the songs that he knew and loved. He began to teach himself to play the piano by ear. But, after about a year he found himself coming back to the piano again.

When he was 12 years old, he stopped taking formal piano lessons. In 1985 they moved back East to Kempton, Pennsylvania. There wasn't a piano teacher available, so Solomon's mom taught him and his sisters. He didn't like taking lessons very much, and at the time he never would have guessed that he would grow up to be a composer for the piano. Solomon started taking piano lessons in 1983, in first grade, from a lady named Polly Schoenberger.

His mom is a pianist; both of his parents play the guitar; and they all love to sing. He was the first in a family of three kids who all grew up listening to, and loving music. He spent most of his early childhood across the state in Pittsburgh. Solomon John Keal was born in 1977 near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in a little town called Bryn Athyn.

Like his major influences - George Winston, Scott Joplin, Hagood Hardy, Jim Brickman, James Horner, and John Tesh - Solomon Keal's compositions have touched thousands of lives with the peace and beauty of classic solo piano music. Then in 2000, he made his second album, ["Heritage" (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/keal00)]. In 1998, with the extraordinary help of Clark Ferguson (Bearswamp Studios), his family and friends, Solomon made his first album entitled ["Thoughts and Affections" (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/keal98)]. Solomon took formal piano lessons for 6 years which laid the foundation for his being able to compose an average of 6 solo piano pieces a year since 1993.

His music can be classified as New Age music or NeoClassical music and reminds us of the folk piano style of George Winston. He composes all original peaceful solo piano music. [Solomon Keal Online (http://www.solomonkeal.com)] Solomon Keal is a solo piano artist from Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania. Heritage (album) - 2000.

Thoughts and Affections (album) - 1998.
