About the Event
Platinum-selling, three-time GRAMMY® award-winning R&B singer-songwriter, New York Times best-selling poet, and critically acclaimed actress, Jill Scott makes her way to Clearwater for her Ruth Eckerd Hall debut. Before having the #1 album in the country with The Light Of The Sun, performing at The White House, being named People Magazine's Top TV Breakout Star of 2010 and appearing on VH1 Divas alongside Aretha Franklin, the triple threat began her career collaborating with musical icons, The Roots, Will Smith, and Common in the late 90’s. Her first album, Who is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1, was released in 2004 and went double platinum, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard US R&B charts. She had starring roles in the Tyler Perry Why Did I Get Married? movie franchise and the HBO-produced First Ladies Detective Series, and also appeared in the TV series, The First Wives Club and Black Lightning, among others. A classically trained opera singer, her first soprano range and mastery of lyrical storytelling has helped build her a cult-like fan base.
