Lauryn Hill plays tribute to Bob Marley on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'

In honor of the 30th anniversary of legendary Jamaican singer, Bob Marley’s death, late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon hosted a weeklong tribute to the entertainer, topping it off with a two-song performance by New Jersey native and singer, Lauryn Hill.

After a lengthy self-imposed exile from the public eye, rumored to be the result of an emotional breakdown, the New Jerseyan appeared as the VIP performer on the show Thursday night along with her personal band singing “Could You Be Loved,” from Marley and the Wailers last album in 1980 and 1981 ballad “Chances Are.”

She took a break from her summer tour for the tribute, which also featured Lenny Kravitz, Chris Cornell, Jennifer Hudson, Keith Richards and Jakob Dylan. Each singer performed one of Marley's classic hits, thefader.com reported.

According to Music Mix on EW.com, Marley's oldest son, Ziggy, will perform tonight. Several fans tweeted their delight about Hill’s comeback, while others remained skeptical recalling previous performances where she was habitually late or acted bizarre.
