Singer-songwriter Lauryn Hill said about the reunion:"The Fugees have a complex but impactful history.

"I wasn’t even aware the 25th anniversary had arrived until someone brought it to my attention.

"I decided to honor this significant project, its anniversary, and the fans who appreciated the music by creating a peaceful platform where we could unite,  perform the music we loved, and set an example of reconciliation for the world.

'The Score' is one of the best-selling and most significant music albums of all time which earned the band two Grammy awards.

When it was released, the album peaked at number one on the Billboard 200 charts 

They were one of the  first hip-hop group ever to be nominated for Album Of The Year and the second only rap album to ever be nominated.

Fellow bandmate Wyclef said: "As I celebrate 25 years with the Fugees, my first memory was that we vowed, from the gate, we would not just do music we would be a movement.

"We would be a voice for the un-heard, and in these challenging times, I am grateful once again, that God has brought us together
