Today in History – Feb 24th

Today is February 24, 2010. Let’s take a small gander at some of history’s notable events that occurred on this date…

1999: At the 41st Grammy Awards, Lauryn Hill made history with a record 10 nominations and 5 wins for her debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.  She was the first female recording artist to receive that many in one night.  Everyone remembers this song…

It’s funny how this song speaks so much truth even still today.

1998: Elton John knighted. 

1991: U.S. and allies begin a ground war assault on Iraqi troops.  The War on Iraq began long before George W. entered office.
