TLC, Lauryn Hill Top Lady Of Soul Awards

Hopefully, Lauryn Hill and the members of TLC have a lot of extra shelf space in their respective homes.

Hill was honored no less than three times at the Fifth Annual Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards ceremony, which was held last Friday at the Santa Monica Civic Center in California. The songstress received awards for Best R&B/Soul Single, Solo (for "Ex-Factor"), Best R&B/Soul Album Of The Year Solo ("The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill") and Best R&B/Soul Or Rap Music Video ("Doo Wop [That Thing]").

Hill has previously won a number of awards for her debut solo album, "The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill," including three Soul Train Awards and five Grammy Awards (see "Lauryn Hill Hops On Board 'Soul Train' For Three Music Awards", "Lauryn Hill, Madonna Rule Over Smooth Grammy Night").
