Lauryn Hill Thanks Fans from Prison

Failing to pay her taxes on almost $1 million in earnings, Lauryn Hill, was sentenced to three months in prison and an additional three years in home confinement. But even behind bars, the former Fugees singer keeps in touch with fans.

Someone posted on the Grammy-winning singer’s behalf to acknowledge those who have taken time to write her.

Ms. Hill has received a lot mail, and would like to let everyone know that she is doing well. She also asked me to pass along this message:

“I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials. Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favor I have encountered while in here, and general warm reception from a community of people who despite their circumstances, have found unique ways to make the best of them. Thank you for the letters of concern and well wishes that I receive in the mail every day. Although I may not be able to write everyone back, please know that they have been received, read, acknowledged, and appreciated. With Love back, MLH,” Hill’s Tumblr page says.
