Lauryn Hill Writes Letter From Prison Thanking Fans

Lauryn Hill is reaching out to fans from behind bars. Earlier this month, the former Fugee began serving a three month prison sentence for tax evasion. Over the weekend, a message from Hill appeared on her Tumblr page, thanking fans for their “letters of concern and well wishes.” Hill also wrote that she has received a “general warm reception” from her fellow inmates, who she says have “found unique ways” to make the best of their circumstances. The message also contained a list of people Hill specifically thanks for their “words of encouragement and support.”
“I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials. Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favor I have encountered while in here, and general warm reception from a community of people who despite their circumstances, have found unique ways to make the best of them. Thank you for the letters of concern and well wishes that I receive in the mail every day. Although I may not be able to write everyone back, please know that they have been received, read, acknowledged, and appreciated. With Love back, MLH”
Hill is currently in federal prison in Danbury, Conn., residing in an open dormitory-style living quarter and working jobs such as maintenance, food service or landscaping
