Singer/rapper Lauryn Hill made a rare appearance last night (Mon. Apr 19) when she hit up the Tanzania Education Trust Gala and Reception, hosted by President Jakaya Kikwete of the United Republic of Tanzania, at Plaza Athenee in New York City. Before making her way into the building, she walked the red carpet for the first time in years and posed for a couple of pictures with fellow musician Anthony Hamilton and Goodwill Ambassador Doug Pitt.

It’s good to see Lauryn out and about (and looking NORMAL) after all of these years. Check out the pics below…
