Singer, actress, poet and just all around amazing … Jill Scott was celebrated on Thursday night for being the incredible woman that she is!
The incomparable Jilly from Philly was honored during Essence Black Women in Music and droves of famous folks came out to show the singer some love. While everyone from Ledisi to Elise Neal had amazing things to says about Ms. Scott, Ciara had a very special message for the powerhouse performer. “Jill, baby girl, you rock honey. You so fly! You da bomb dot com. And you deserve every bit of this,” Ci Ci playfully stated.
HipHollywood was on hand for the amazing event where not only was Jill recognized, but MC Lyte, Lianne La Havas, Brandy and Chaka Khan hit the stage to perform as well. The event, sponsored by Lincoln, highlighted four decades of women in the music industry.
The 6th annual Essence Black Women in Music was so stellar this year, it will be hard to top next — but they also do!
