Jill Scott is a soprano, who infused jazz, opera, R&B, spoken word, and hip hop among other genres to create a distinct style, that many refer to as neo soul. A reviewer on Pop Matter, referring to Scott’s vocal ability (1st soprano), stated, “Scott draws on her upper register, recalling the artistry of the late ‘songbird’ Minnie Riperton and Deniece Williams.” The same reviewer in another article stated, “The song evokes the artistry of Minnie Riperton as Scott sings in the upper register that makes its only appearances on ‘Who is Jill Scott?’ on the teasing ‘I Think It’s Better’ and ‘Show Me’.” Scott has “a very rare facility to hit notes in the sixth octave as displayed on songs such as ‘Gimme’ where she hits a D6 with full vibrato, and on ‘Spring Summer Feeling’ where she hits a C7 in the background.”

Her 2000 debut, ‘Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1’, went platinum, and the follow-ups ‘Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds Vol. 2 ‘(2004) and ‘The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3′ (2007) both achieved gold status. She made her cinematic debut in the films Hounddog and Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married? in 2007. After a four-year hiatus from music, Scott released her fourth album, The Light of the Sun, in 2011. In 2014, she starred in the film Get On Up as the second wife of James Brown.[3] She also appeared as the lead role in the BBC/HBO series The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. In 2015, she released her fifth album, Woman.
