Lauryn Hill was in good spirits during her first Coachella appearance. L. Boogie, draped in a flowing blue-and-white striped dress under a cropped leather jacket, was running a little behind for her set and had some sound problems early on, but she didn’t disappoint the sweaty fans who bared the desert heat to catch her on the main stage.
The former Fugees frontwoman and her band reworked favorites like “The Sweetest Thing” and “Ex-Factor,” adding in Fugees classics including “Ready or Not” and “Fu-Gee-La.” “It wouldn’t be right if we didn’t leave you with one more tune,” said Ms. Hill before singing her Grammy-winning opus “Doo Wop (That Thing)” with her backup singers.
“We love you. We gotta do this again. Bless and love Coachella,” she told the audience before making her exit.
