“The Original Jill Scott: A Documentary” To Stream On CentricTV.com

Who is Jill Scott? To ask that now would mean you’ve been living life under a very large rock. But 11 years ago, she was a talented unknown from North Philadelphia with a sound that was new and soulful.

Released in 2000, Scott’s debut album, Who Is Jill Scott: Words and Sounds Vol. 1 was the perfect introduction into a musical space that had yet to be fully conquered: neo-soul. A veritable marriage of soul music and poetry, her knack for emoting and telling a story through song would become the formula that birthed her hits—”Gettin In The Way,” “A Long Walk Home,” and “The Way” among them.

Of course she would go on to release two more albums—Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds Vol. 2 and The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3—and along the way picked up a slew of awards, including the Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance.

In celebration of her music, and by popular demand, CentricTV.com will stream “The Original Jill Scott: A Documentary” on December 15th.
