The Fugees were a critically-acclaimed New Jersey hip hop group that rose to fame in the mid-1990s, whose repertoire included elements of soul, and Caribbean music, particularly reggae. The members of the group are rapper/singer/producer Wyclef Jean, rapper/singer Lauryn Hill, and rapper Pras Michel. Deriving their name from the term \\\"refugee\\\", Jean and Michel are Haitian Americans, while Hill is African American. The group recorded two albums — one of which, The Score , was a multi-platinum and Grammy-winning success — before disbanding in 1997. Hill and Jean each went on to successful solo recording careers, Michel focused on soundtrack recordings and acting, though he found commercial success with his song \\\"Ghetto Superstar\\\".
\\\"Killing Me Softly with His Song\\\" is a 1971 song composed by Charles Fox and Norman Gimbel. The song was inspired by a poem by Lori Lieberman, \\\"Killing Me Softly With His Blues\\\", which she wrote after seeing a then-unknown Don McLean perform the song \\\"Empty Chairs\\\" live. Don McLean does not wear his glasses when performing, thus the line \\\"he looked right through me as if I wasn\\\'t there\\\". Lieberman was the first to record Fox and Gimbel\\\'s song, in 1971, but it became a bigger hit when covered by Roberta Flack in 1973. Her version won three Grammy Awards and in 1999 was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. The Fugees covered the song in 1996 on their album The Score, with Lauryn Hill singing the lead vocals. Their version became a massive hit reaching No.2 on the U.S. airplay chart, and had similar success in the UK, reaching No.1 and selling over a million copies.
The Fugees won two 1997 Grammy Awards with The Score [Best Rap Album] and \\\"Killing Me Softly\\\" [Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group].
