Jill Scott performs at Wolf Trap on July 15

Grammy-winning R&B singer/songwriter Jill Scott makes her Wolf Trap debut this summer on July 15. Tickets for this performance go on sale Saturday, May 18 at 10 am.

The Philadelphia-born performer is praised for seamlessly blending jazz, gospel, and hip-hop music with insightful and uplifting poetry. Scott’s latest release, The Light of the Sun (2011), carries her signature neosoul sound and personal themes of conflicted love, hurt, and hope. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Scott burst onto the music scene in the late ’90s through collaborations with The Roots, Will Smith, and Common. She released her first solo album Who is Jill Scott? in 2000, which reached double platinum status and spawned the hit singles “A Long Walk” and “He Loves Me (Lyzel in E Flat).” Scott also thrives as an actor, having appeared in the films Hounddog and Why Did I Get Married? and most recently in the HBO/BBC miniseries The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency, among others.
