Born April 4 1972 , she grew up with her mom and grandmother in Philadelphia. From an early age she already displayed signs of brilliance. At eight months she started talking and was reading by four. (It seems that she always had a lot to say from since then). Always the centre of attention at school, she was described as a little butterfly by her principal and she has been flying ever since.
After performing with groups like ‘The Roots” in the underground circuit, Jill Scott burst onto the scene in 2000 with her debut album ‘Who is Jill Scott?’ which went multiplatinum and the world definitely knew who she was after that. Since then she has a reputation of being a classic thoughtprovoking artist and her music range infuses Jazz,R&B , Spoken word and Hip Hop among other genres to create a disinct style known as neo soul.
Jill Scott wears many hats as a Grammy winning American poet, actress, singer and songwriter.Some of her hits include:
A long walk
It’s just the way you love me
He loves me
and of course Golden
This year Jill turned the big 4 0, and you know what they say…… Life begins at 40 ! so we look forward to many more hits from this phenomenal lady.
