Smooth sounds of a dynamic soprano who infuses R&B, spoken word, jazz and hip hop, epitomizes the songstress that is Jill Scott. Airey Scott together with Kaya FM, Mzanzi Magic and Tsogo Sun bring us the The No.1 Lady, for one night only in Johannesburg on the 13 December 2014 at the Coca-Cola Dome.
With over 4 million records sold in the US and numerous awards across music and film over the past decades, three-time Grammy Award winning singer/actress Jill Scott has proven why she is an artist personified.
Before being named People Magazine’s Top TV Breakout Star of 2010 and appearing on VH1 Divas alongside Aretha Franklin, the triple threat began her career collaborating with musical icons, The Roots, Will Smith, and Common in the late 90s. In 2000, she released her much anticipated debut record, Who is Jill Scott? Words & Sounds, Vol. 1, a double platinum album that earned Scott several Grammy nominations, including Best New Artist. Two more critically acclaimed albums followed, Beautifully Human: Words & Sounds, Vol. 2 and The Real Thing: Words & Sounds, Vol. 3 which garnered two more Grammy Awards and spawned multiple worldwide tours.
As an actress Jill Scott has also enjoyed great success, including her appearance in the HBO TV series No.1 Ladies Detective Agency, which was set and filmed nearby in Botswana.
This summer Johannesburg will be catapulted into the world of Miss Jill Scott, as she carries her fans along on a melodic live journey with her dynamic voice for one night only this December. Johannesburg audiences will be treated to the full Jill Scott experience at a seated concert at The Coca –Cola Dome.
Promoters Airey Scott, known for the recent Kendrick Lamar and 2Chainz SA tours, are excited to finally be bringing Jill Scott out to Johannesburg. ‘Having only ever performed in Cape Town in the past, we felt that it was only right to bring Jill Scott to Johannesburg and offer the market this exclusive experience’ said promoter Stuart Scott.
Limited tickets for the seated concert are available at Computicket now. These range from R390 to R1020.
