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:

‘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.

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