Lauryn Hill continued her return to the stage by taking park in “Beatles Week” on the “The Late Show With David Letterman.” According to Vibe Magazine on Feb. 8, the former Fugees star performed the song “Something” as part of the Beatles tribute.

Clad in a plaid dress and leather jacket, Hill demonstrated her soulful sound in delivering a more modernized version of the 1969 hit song in honor of the group’s 50th anniversary of their first performance on American soil on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

The week of all-star Beatles covers included performances by Broken Bells, Sting and Ivy Levan, The Flaming Lips and Sean Lennon, Lenny Kravitz, and Hill, who is making a musical comeback after her recent stint in prison for tax evasion.

Although it was good to see Hill performing again, the Grammy winner had to apologize to fans for canceling a concert in New Jersey. According to a rep, Hill “came down with a stomach bug/virus” and could not perform. Her appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” was pre-recorded on Thursday, a day before it actually aired on the show. It was the second time she canceled the New Jersey show.

The performance was Hill’s first appearance on television in three years. The 38-year-old singer released her newest single, “Consumerism”, as a celebration of her release from prison back in October.
