Jilly from Philly!

Jill-Scott-takes-on-a-New-Album-Weight-Loss-and-Touring

Talented R&B Singer Jill Scott aka (Jilly from Philly) has had a FABULOUS year so far and it looks like there is no end in sight!
She has had a dramatic weight loss, brand new album and is successfully touring as we speak.  Her sultry voice soothes the soul with a hip vibe and cool sound.  Jill’s latest album, “Light of the Sun” sold 135,000 copies in the first week and is on the Billboard charts. I absolutely ‘LOVE” this album.

This sultry album shows some of her deepest struggles and how she got through them. I feel like she has reached a new kind of creativity when it comes to her writing while her singing is always on point! She collaborates with Anthony Hamilton, Paul Wall & one of my FAVES…Doug E. Fresh.  The song “So Blessed” is a prime example of how wonderful and strong she is. I pull strength from Jill and she makes me think of how blessed I am and to always be thankful for what I have. An Album like this helps me see clearer and makes me cherish the important parts of my life such as family, while at the same time realizing that materialistic things are just that…”just things”.

I’v got a personal invite to go see Jill on Friday August 12, 2011 and wouldn’t miss it for it for the world…I need her music in my life!   It’s being held at the The Budwiser Superfest. The name of her tour is called ‘Jill Scott’s Block Party’ and is going to be at the Sleep Train Pavilion in Concord, California. This will be my first time seeing her live and I so can’t wait to hear her incredible voice…EXCITING!!!  ;)

I really admire her drive since she set out and accomplished losing 60lbs recently…for all us full figured girls we know that even losing 10lbs is unbelievably difficult. She is soooooo sophisticated, confident and amazing…Plus, I definitely notice her new swag! It’s like she has a new found strength and power. Taking control of her life and changing her body had to of taken an incredible amount of determination and it has paid off in a BIG way; she looks so gorgeous and sexier than ever. Have you seen the album cover? WOW…She’s GORGEOUS!!! She’s a full figured curvaceous role model. Her personal trainer helps her exercise by taking walks, tossing a ball or going for a swim and just having fun.  Jilly is a phenomenal woman indeed.

Go out and get her album “The Light of the Sun” and let Jill shine on you!
