Three-time GRAMMY® award-winning singer-songwriter, New York Times best-selling poet, and critically acclaimed actor are only a few titles held by Jill Scott. Before having the #1 album in the country with The Light of the Sun and most recently, 2015’s Woman, the triple threat began her career collaborating with musical icons The Roots, Will Smith, and Common in the late 90s.

Never limited to music, Jill Scott is a true multimedia brand across books, clothing, TV and film; including credits such as 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 also founded Blues Babe, a registered 501(c)3 foundation that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support minority students pursuing college degrees.

In January of 2017, Jill Scott marked her brand’s expansion into stationary, releasing an exclusive “Jill Scott” greeting card collection in partnership with Hallmark Mahogany. Jill Scott received a 2017 Grammy nomination in the "Best Traditional R&B Performance" category for her single, "Can't Wait."
