Lauryn Hill’s son Zion shared a heartfelt moment with his mother following her performance of “To Zion” at ONE MusicFest over the weekend.
Shortly after performing “To Zion,” the 1998 song about her choice to keep her first child with Rohan Marley, son of Bob Marley, Lauryn was surprised onstage by Zion. The two embraced for a moment and then he returned backstage. Hill asked the crowd to make some noise for Zion before asking him to come back with her two grandchildren, Zephaniah and Azaria.
The moment can be seen in the video below at the 18:00 mark.
“To Zion” appeared on Hill’s landmark album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which won the Grammy for Album of the Year and Best R&B Album. That same year, she also received the Grammy for Best New Artist and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for “Doo Wop (That Thing).”
The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill went diamond last year.
“Woe this crazy circumstance/I knew his life deserved a chance,” Hill sings on “To Zion.”
“But everybody told me to be smart, “Look at your career,” they said/“Lauryn, baby use your head”/But instead I chose to use my heart.”
