After being released from prison last week, Lauryn Hill pens a ‘thank you’ letter to the fans, appreciating the support that he she received during her nearly three month stint. She writes:
Letter of Recognition –
Firstly, I want to thank everyone who wrote letters and sent packages and books. Because of you there was not one day that I didn’t receive mail while I was away. I appreciated that. Know that many of your letters not only touched me but continued to confirm for me what I already knew but needed to hear again: that sincere expression has a serious purpose. If one of you had been touched, picked up, encouraged or prevented from succumbing to some measure of social or Spiritual decline, then it was worth it. Folks, walk strong, seek light and Universal reproof in all things. Know that man-made concerns and Universal concerns are not always in agreement. Obviously, strive to please God. Thank you again and again.
In Love and Freedom,
Ms. Lauryn Hill
In addition to her release, according to USA Today — the U.S. Magistrate Madeline Cox Arleo has modified the condition of Hill’s supervised release. Hill wanted to go on tour from Nov. 15th through December 31st, which Arleo approved. On New Years’ Day 2014, Hill will then be ordered to serve the remainder of her sentence. She also has to give to her probation officer ‘a detailed itinerary, including the dates, cities, and hotels where she will be staying’ while on tour.
