An Intimate Evening with Lauryn Hill – A Celebration of Music!
On Saturday, September 8th, Toronto’s Kool Haus transformed into the ultra cool Diesel Lounge, becoming a venue with all the glitz and glamour befitting the talent performing that evening.
Eight-time Grammy Award winning artist Ms. Lauryn Hill and special guests took to the stage to support ONEXONE. Kardinal Offishall warmed the crowd up early, joined by Cole Mitchell, Solitair, Maestro Fresh Wes, R & B singer Jully Black, Shi Wisdom and special guest K’Naan. Music for the evening was provided by DJ YO-C.
Ms. Lauryn Hill’s performance closed out the night; performing for two hours to a sold out audience of loyal fans. It was spectacular! Near the end of her performance her children came on stage and her son Joshua dropped a rhyme as well.
Celebrities and fans turned out in full force. Kristin Kreuk, Kardinal Offishall, Fefe Dobson, Lyriq Bent, David Rocco and more all walked the red carpet.
