Lauryn Hill Pens Letter from Jail: ‘Thank You For The Letters of Concern and Well Wishes’

She may be behind bars, but that hasn’t stopped Lauryn Hill from writing a letter to her fans.

Some two weeks after Hill checked herself into jail for a three-month sentence for tax evasion, the following message was posted on her official Tumblr page:

"I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials.  Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favor I have encountered while in here, and general warm reception from a community of people who despite their circumstances, have found unique ways to make the best of them.  Thank you for the letters of concern and well wishes that I receive in the mail every day.  Although I may not be able to write everyone back, please know that they have been received, read, acknowledged, and appreciated. With Love back, MLH"
The 38-year-old also singled out dozens of names, thanking them for their “words of encouragement and support.”

Hill is serving her sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn.
