Just call her Dr. Jilly from Philly! Jill Scott is returning to her alma mater to receive an honorary doctorate.
On Thursday May 15th, Scott will be honored as a Doctor of Humane Letters at Temple University in her hometown of Philadelphia.
The singer/slash actress, who was last seen in the Paula Patton lead RomCom Baggage Claim, will be on the big screen again in Get On Up, the James Brown biopic, later this year.
But just because she’s a big success as an actress doesn’t mean she leaving her singing roots. When we spoke to Jill during the Baggage Claim junket she told us that she taking her time with the music side of things, but she has been in the stuiod with some heavyweights!
