Last month, Crossfade reported the massive news that Ms. Lauryn Hill would be headlining the two-day Jazz in the Gardens festival at Sun Life Stadium -- and only a few months after the former Fugees frontwoman laid down one of Miami's best concerts of 2010 as part of UM homecoming weekend.
It was initially announced that Ms. Hill would be joined by seven other superjazzy individuals at Sun Life, including Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh.
But now a couple of things have changed: (1) Rick and Doug E. have been dropped; while (2) former New Edition members Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, and Ralph Tresvant have been added.
See the cut for an updated Jazz in the Gardens lineup.
