Jill Scott is on the rise….again.
Jill Scott a Grammy-winning American singer-songwriter, actress and poet. Born April 4, 1972 in the North Philly neighbourhood of the City of Philadelphia. Since the year of 1999, Jill Scott has been reputable for her poetic and thought provoking music which subsequently led her to the success of her 2000 multi-platinum selling debut, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1. Following Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds Vol. 2 released in 2004, and The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3 released in 2007 simultaneously achieved gold status. She made her cinematic debut in the films Hound dog and Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married? in 2007.
Although Jill Scott was unreasonably sued by Hidden Beach Records for leaving halfway through her six album contract and owing millions of dollars in damages, with reasons after all, Scott was the first artist signed to Steve McKeever’s ‘Hidden Beach Recordings’ label. Debut album, Who Is Jill Scott Words and Sounds Vol. 1was released in 2000 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jill_Scott . She eventually experienced some notice and chart success with the single “A Long Walk”, which earned her a Grammy nomination in early 2003 for Best Female Vocal Performance. However, Jill Scott lost that award, but won a 2005 Grammy for Best Urban/Alternative R&B Performance for “Cross My Mind”.
Either way, Jill Scott seems to be persistent with her music career, as she keeps on impressing her listeners with an energy of ever-flowing album releases. As a result, during her stint at the Essence Festival, she announced her intentions of releasing two studio albums. One is at the end of 2013 and the other during the spring of 2014.
The idea came about several years ago prior to giving birth to her son, Jett. Now putting the finishing touches on it, she says the album will provide affirmations for babies and children. “The lyrics are meant to be encouraging and nourishing to the spirit,” she explained proudly. “The ultimate goal, however, is for the album people to purchase the album, but not actually hear it because they’ll be too busy sleeping,” she said with a smile. For the sake of wanting to know what I am talking about, you can watch her videos on you tube.
