After attending Lauryn Hill's recent show in Brooklyn, Melanie Fiona was so moved that she expressed her extreme gratitude in an open letter penned to The Fugee's Queen piece. Take a look below.

I have had many blessed, spiritual, and unforgettable moments in my life… But none more inspiring and life altering than last night. For those of you have ever listened to my music as a full body of work, heard any of my interviews, or have been to any of my live shows… Knows, that Lauryn Hill is a driving force of inspiration in everything I do. There would be no first audition for me if couldn’t sing her version of “his eye is on the sparrow”… There wouldn’t be “Felony Miona”... There wouldn’t be the artist you see today who isn’t afraid to bare her soul about life and love. And last night, I got to tell her that. After seeing her murder the stage…I personally got to express my teary eyed gratitude. A REAL dream come true for me. Lauryn Hill is the true essence of artistry that I aspire to represent… One who can break barriers, colour lines, industry standards, and ignorant minds… All while making amazing heartfelt educated music. My life will never be the same… It will be better... For what I received last night in energy and inspiration will most definitely make me a better artist and woman in this industry. You will feel it. Thank You #LaurynHill… You are singlehandedly, hands down, the greatest to ever do it ALL… Triple Threat… And to inspire a musical generation so starved that we still anticipate any and everything that you will do in the future. With Love, Respect, Support and Gratitude, MF xo

This is awesome.

    Lauryn was terrible the two times I saw her. I guess she got herself together so I'm happy about that.

    So sick of the Lauryn obsession, the bitch had one studio album!!!....and like 10 verses on the fugees album then that acoustic shit where attemtped to show how much of an intellect she was and rambled most of the time...she's the most insecure artist of all time who couldn't live up to another album but instead blamed the "system" or people not understanding her. no one else gets a pass for this type of fuckery but her
