A Fresh View: Ms. Lauryn Hill Comes to Brown

Lauryn Hill

Hello, Brown hopefuls! My name is Kimberly Truong and I am the awkward (but utterly thrilled) first-year behind A Fresh View. With that big question mark hovering over where you’ll be spending the next four years of your life, rest assured that this freshman will tell you her experience as she stumbles through the wonderful world of Brown.

As you probably know, Spring Weekend was this week and Brown’s concert lineup was too good to beat. At first, I thought I wouldn’t be able to get a ticket after underestimating how quickly the tickets were sold out on the first day. Luckily, Providence’s weather was looking up and an outdoors concert meant more tickets to be sold on the next day. I made it a mission to get a ticket the second time around.

Although I wasn’t particularly enthused with the lineup of performers before Lauryn Hill, Ms. Lauryn Hill’s performance was worth waiting an hour before while a DJ tried to get the crowd hyped up with some mixes of popular party club songs, insisting that he was “preparing you [us] for Lauryn Hill.” Ms. Hill’s vocals were powerful and her version of Fugees’s cover of “Killing Me Softly” was just as moving and high-energy as her famous tune, “Doo Wop (That Thing).” I left the Main Green in awe of her performance.

Any questions or suggestions for my next post? Please send them my way at kimberly_truong@brown.edu. I’m happy to answer and heed to all of them!
