Sharing is caring!

Lauryn Hill was scheduled to go on a reunion tour with The Fugees, but the international tour has been postponed due to concerns over COVID-19. Instead, the singer gave a performance at Virgil Abloh’s funeral in Chicago last weekend.

Give voice, in the midst of tears

Watching R ihanna, A $ AP Rocky, Drake, Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, Tyler, The Creator, Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian , Hill sang in a tearful voice, shaken by sobs, and had to stop several times to meditate. The tearful rendition of Everything Is Everything, which was rated Billboard Hot 100 in 1998, followed Tyler’s moving praise , The Creator, on his late friend and founder of Off-White. ”  All these different people, of all colors, of all ages, of all backgrounds, of all religions, came for one man and that’s what he did, he brought together the most sick, ” he said in part.“Like Don said, even the people I found ‘ugh’. But you learn that he’s not that bad or that he’s a genius at everything he does. “

A creator who believed in the power of art

The fashion designer – who was the artistic director of the Louis Vuitton men’s collection – died on November 28 from a rare and aggressive form of cancer called cardiac angiosarcoma, just two years after his diagnosis. Abloh’s family spoke out in an Instagram post shortly after news of his death was announced.

“  For more than two years, Virgil valiantly fought a rare and aggressive form of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma. He has chosen to endure his battle in private since his diagnosis in 2019, undergoing many difficult treatments, while also being the head of several important institutions that span fashion, art and culture. Through it all, his work ethic, endless curiosity and optimism never wavered. Virgil was driven by his dedication to his craft and his mission to open doors for others and create pathways for greater equality in art and design. He would often say, “Everything I do is for the 17 year old version of myself”, deeply believing in the power of art to inspire future generations “.
