Former FUGEES star Lauryn Hill will finally re-emerge in the public eye after a long absence, to perform at an upcoming festival.

The DOO WOP (THAT THING) singer garnered attention and acclaim in 1998 when she released her debut solo album THE MISEDUCATION OF LAURYN HILL. She then retreated from the spotlight, returning in 2002 with the disappointing MTV UNPLUGGED NO. 2.0 ALBUM.

And now mother-of-four Hill is scheduled to step out once again at the KOOL NU JAZZ FESTIVAL - a series of concerts which will travel to four American cities this autumn (04).

Hill and her band will perform new material during headlining stops in Chicago, Illinois, and Atlanta, Georgia.

Other performers include Erykah Badu, The Roots, Jill Scott, Twista, RUBEN STUDDARD, George Clinton and Outkast's Big Boi.

The tour will also stop in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Detroit, Michigan.

Hill's last performance, at the Vatican last year (03), caused controversy when she condemned the recent spate of child molestation allegations against Catholic priests in America.
