Keri Hilson - Hilson Overjoyed By Hill Meeting

R&B singer KERI HILSON is one step closer to achieving her dream of working with LAURYN HILL after meeting her idol and learning the hip-hop star is a fan of her music.
The Knock You Down hitmaker has been a big fan of the former Fugees singer/rapper for years and last month (Dec10) expressed her desire to help Hill with her comeback record, her first album since 1998's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
She told WENN, "Lauryn Hill is someone who is very candid with her music... I loved her candidness, her candor, she's just up there. She exposes all sides of herself, her vulnerabilities, insecurities but you also see the strength and her innocence.
"Even her business savvy she talks about in her records, I just appreciate seeing a woman in true form and that's what I try to do with my music as well, so I figure it would be an awesome collaboration."
Hilson got the chance to meet the reclusive Hill backstage at one of her concerts at the Blue Note jazz club in New York earlier this week (begs03Jan11) and she couldn't contain her excitement after hearing how big a fan Hill and her daughter are of her single Pretty Girl Rock.
Taking to her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Utmost respect 4 Lauryn Hill. So beautiful. Very down to earth. Anyone who knows me knows she’s a huge inspiration to me... I told her 2nite.
"Said she loves Pretty Girl Rock (SCREAAAM) & her daughter loves me! Said my music embodies a certain confidence women need. I’m so inspired (sic)."
