GET ON UP

JILL SCOTT (DeeDee Brown) is a three-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, a New York Times best-selling poet and a critically acclaimed actress. Before having the No. 1 album in the country ("The Light of the Sun"), performing at the White House, being named one of People magazine's 2009 TV's Breakout Stars and appearing alongside Aretha Franklin in VH1's Divas, triple-threat Scott began her career collaborating with musical icons The Roots, Will Smith and Common in the late 1990s.

In 2000, Scott released her much-anticipated debut record, "Who is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds, Vol. 1," a double-platinum album that earned her several Grammy Award nominations, including Best New Artist. Two more critically acclaimed albums followed, "Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds, Vol. 2" and "The Real Thing: Words and Sounds, Vol. 3," which brought Scott two Grammy Awards and spawned multiple worldwide tours.

Committed to her acting craft, Scott has appeared on television in several roles, including the universally praised lead in HBO's The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency; the remake of Steel Magnolias; and the hit show Fringe. Her successful foray into film includes roles in Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married? and its sequel, Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too?, and most recently in the new romantic comedy Baggage Claim.

A consummate writer at heart, Scott penned "The Moments, the Minutes, the Hours," which instantly became a New York Times best seller. Scott also developed an intimate apparel line for Ashley Stewart and founded Blues Babe Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of minority students pursuing college degrees.
