Singer, spoken-word poet, writer, actress — is all wrapped up into the beautiful woman known as Jill Scott. Her creativity in poetry and music has earned the multi-talented Scott three Grammy Awards and counting.
It’s hard to believe 17 years have passed since Scott’s debut album, “Who Is Jill Scott?” dropped — for the singer as much as anyone.
“I know,” Scott said. “It’s crazy that time has flown by like this. I crack up over it and I’m also bewildered. Can you believe this? A woman came up to me and said, ‘I gave birth to my son with your music in the background.’
“I said, ‘you’ve got to be kidding.’ But she wasn’t. It was surreal. She was 27. She listened to me in high school and now she’s a grown woman with a son and a job.”
The same can be said for Scott. She’s a grown woman with a 7-year old son and a beautiful career. “I’m well aware of how fortunate I am. How many people get to do what they love?”
Now, 45 years young and married, Jilly from Philly reveals what’s really on her heart.
