In this episode of Cover Stories, Debra Elana covers “To Zion” by Lauryn Hill. We talk about Lauryn Hill’s legacy and what she meant to Debra growing up from Sister Act 2 to The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill to her Unplugged album. We also discuss how underrated Bill’s rapping is and what she meant to a generation of young women in the late 90s.
We also discuss some of Debra’s other influences including Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and Dashboard Confessional. Furthermore, we dive into diversity in pop culture in the 90s vs now, and Debra gives Erik a crash course on Christian and gospel music.
In this episode, we discuss:
  • The importance of Lauryn Hill and what The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
  • Debra’s inspirations from Erykah Badu to Fiona Apple to Jill Scott to Dashboard Confessional
  • Debra gets a little distracted reminiscing while we discuss the D’Angelo’s music video for “Untitled”
  • Debra educates Erik on how Christian and gospel music is much more than Lecrae and DCTalk and “she who shall not be named” (Amy Grant)
