JILL SCOTT at Hampton Jazz Festival
@ Hampton Coliseum, Friday Jun 23 2017

Three-time GRAMMY® award-winning singer-songwriter, New York Times best-selling poet, and critically acclaimed actress 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.

Most Recently, Jill has introduced an exclusive new greeting card collection in partnership with Hallmark Mahogany.  The collection is a series of greeting cards that feature design, editorial and sounds all inspired by and created in likeness of the Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter. Scott collaborated with the creative team at Hallmark to develop design themes that reflected her personality, often including layers of vivid colors, natural textures and soothing metallics. Scott also helped set the editorial ‘voice’ and wrote many of the cards— opting for affirming, optimistic and genuine messages. For more information on the Hallmark Mahogany collection, click here.
