Lauryn Hill is reaching out to fans for the first time since being released from prison. The Grammy-winning singer exited a federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut last Friday after serving three-months for tax evasion.
In a letter posted on her Tumblr account, Lauryn recognized all those who "wrote letters and sent packages and books." Apparently, not a day went by that she didn't receive mail from fans. Hill says the letters touched her while she was locked up and also confirmed her belief that "sincere expression has a serious purpose." Lauryn signed her letter "in love and freedom." Attached to the message was a lengthy list of names of people who offered Hill "words of encouragement and support."
Lauryn Hill still has to spend an additional three-months on house arrest. However, she will get a break from her confinement to go on tour from November 15th to December 31st. She will resume her home detention on New Year's Day.
