Multi-platinum recording artist, New York Times best-selling poet and critically acclaimed actress Jill Scott began her career collaborating with musical icons The Roots, Will Smith and Common in the late ‘90s. Scott’s bold explorations of both erotic love and self-empowerment have given the world “A Long Walk,” “So In Love” and the classic, multi-platinum album Who is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1. She is a true artist who imbues her visionary music with jazz, hip hop and spoken word.
Her film and TV credits include Baggage Claim, Steel Magnolias, The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency, Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married? and Lifetime's Sins of the Mother. In 2002, Scott founded Blues Babe, a registered 501(c)3 foundation that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support minority students pursuing college degrees.
“Fool’s Gold” (her latest single) and the critically-acclaimed “You Don’t Know” are featured on Scott’s just-released fifth album, Woman.
