Lauryn Hill Pays Tribute To Bob Marley On ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’

By: Robbie Daw / May 13, 2011

Formerly-reclusive singer Lauryn Hill recently extended her her 12-city tour, but she took a detour last night to participate in the Bob Marley tribute week staged by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Hill has a personal connection to the reggae legend and his legacy — her partner is Marley’s son Rohan, with whom she has five children. Head below to watch soulful Lauryn do that thing while giving rousing performances of “Chances Are” and “Could You Be Loved.”

Hill’s performances caused Jimmy Fallon’s house band leader Questlove to tweet, “imma start what i know will be a rending topic #MsLaurynHill.” See that — Lauryn was so mesmerizing, he forgot to add a “t” to trending!
