“Lauryn Hill” Live Stream Concert: Thousands Tune in to Watch an Empty Chair For Hours

Published: Monday 23rd Mar 2020 by Rashad

Artists of every genre are gifting their fans live virtual concerts in the wake of imposed social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic.  The R&B realm has been particularly treated as some of its most respected vocalists of the day (Erykah Badu, John Legend, Anthony Hamilton, H.E.R., and more) have taken to their respective social media platforms to crank out hits and even take requests.

And while those sounds have been a source of comfort for homebound music enthusiasts, so has comedy.  Recently, a Facebook user earned laughs when she took to the outlet to say:

Apparently, someone took the notion to heart.  See what we mean inside:

‘Just wait…she’s on her way’ is the caption that accompanied a ‘Lauryn Hill Virtual Concert’ on Facebook Monday night (March 23).  Over three hours after its launch, the live cast was still rolling with no performer in sight as its billed star was completely unaware of the venture.

Garnering thousands of viewers and 11,000+ comments (some of which suggested some users thought the concert was real), the visual came as quite the joke from singer/songwriter Arielle K. Crosby who used it to spotlight Hill’s legendary reputation for tardiness.

The 44-year-old diva has been slammed with bad press over the last few years for arriving hours late to her own gigs or worse – canceling concerts AFTER their scheduled kick off times.  Click here to read more on that.

As of time reported, Hill has not indicated she knows about the parody.

      She was fixing dinner and popping chewing gum while listening to Nina Simone like, “Junior, come get your food!” ? ? She didn’t have time for her living room concert ?

      • Normani Love Lies March 23, 2020

    Girl. How are you late and it’s at your house? She needs to stop performing. This is rude to your fans. Clearly Lauryn isn’t playing with a full deck of cards these days. It’s sad to see

    • Ughhh March 24, 2020

      Did you not read? It was a joke/parody. Lauryn Hill has nothing to do with this

      • Lmfao_Hoe March 24, 2020

        @Ughhh some of the commenters on here are f****** stupid it’s not even funny and only spew hate because clearly if they read the entire article other than the misleading title they know Lauryn had nothing to do with this parody. I don’t even try anymore let morons expose their stupidity each and everyday

    IT WASN’T Lauryn Hill… It was a joke from Arielle K. Crosby. Laurun Hill probably doesn’t even know this happened!

    This is unnecessarily mean especially in a critical time like this.

    Leave that woman called Lauryn hill ALONE.
    Yall are laughing and mocking her but u will miss her dearly when she’s gone.

    • Pu$$yPop$tre$$ March 24, 2020

      We won’t miss her or Scamila

      • Normani Love Lies March 24, 2020

        Join Dionne Warren Psychic Network and Friends. Call now????

    • XYZ March 24, 2020

      We haven’t heard from her since 20 years. The only thing she is making Headlines with is her abscence during her own concerts. I’m good hearing her album. But she is not giving anything to her fans and audience, so there is not that much to miss

  6. Shayla Queen ? March 24, 2020

  7. Chileplease March 24, 2020
