Lauryn Hill being booed at the Apollo Theatre at age 13.
The other night I did one of the worst performances of my life. I was pitchy, nervous, forgot lyrics, had to sing loudly over the top of an overbearing guitar. The whole time I was up there I wanted to get off but I had to keep soldiering on. I cried on the way home and cried myself to sleep but then I woke up the next morning and realised that I need to use it as a learning curb. I won’t give up, I can only get better.
And then I found this video. This is Lauryn Hill getting booed at age 13 but she picks up that microphone and she just keeps hammering it out. Now look at her; living legend
