Jill Scott A Real "Super Natural" Star
Birthday: April 4, 1972
Hometown: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Hailing from the City of Brotherly Love, Jill Scott is the epitome of passion and power with her skillful songwriting and spectacular live performances. Scott initially attended Temple University in hopes of becoming a teacher; then things took a turn and she decided to pursue a career in entertainment as a spoken word artist, performing at live poetry readings.
Jill eventually got her big break when Amir "QuestLove" Thompson of The Roots invited her to join the band in the studio. They collaborated on the song "You Got Me," which went on to win a Grammy in 2000. That year she released her debut album, "Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1" and followed up with "Experience: Jill Scott 826+" the next summer. In 2003 she earned a Grammy for her hit song "A Long Walk."
Scott expanded her résumé, putting her acting skills to use by appearing in several episodes of UPN's "Girlfriends." The artist saw the release of her second studio album, "Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds, Vol. 2," in 2004.
At the 2006 ESSENCE Music Festival, Scott caught the attention of many as she spoke out against degrading images of women in hip-hop. A year later, Scott made her big-screen debut in "Hounddog" and Tyler Perry's feature film "Why Did I Get Married?" Coming through her divorce stronger, she released her latest album, "The Real Thing: Words and Sounds, Vol. 3," in 2007. Scott's magic on-screen keeps her in front of the camera as will star in HBO's new series "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency".
