How many of you watched Black Girls Rock last night? I was able to watch a segment of it and was very happy to see today's diva, Miss Jilly from Philly, perform the "Womanifesto" from her latest album, The Light of the Sun.
For years now, Jill Scott has been gracing us with her sultry voice, soulful songs, and recently, her powerful acting skills. I remember first hearing her on the Roots singles "You Got Me" and "Complexity" wondering who the woman with the captivating voice was. Now several hit singles ("A Long Walk," "Golden," and "Hate on Me" to name a few), albums, movies, a book and a baby later, we have the quintessential diva before us.
She makes me proud to be a woman, as she is not afraid nor ashamed to bear her sensual side. She speaks proudly and with such an unapologetic authority, one can't help but take notice. She embraces her womanly strength and femininity wholeheartedly, and that is why I admire her.
