Call in to speak with the host
Don’t try pigeonholing Grammy-winning diva Jill Scott into a single artistic discipline, lest you want a piece of her fast, fertile mind. “I just got a TV pilot. It’s call Second Sight. It’s kind of a science-fiction genre. I play Dr. Safreen Callier. We’re filiming now in New Orleans,” the R&B—and hip hop and soul and jazz—singer tells 6th Man Radio hosts Nadine Michel and The Bad Seed. “People feel I just came out of nowhere into acting. But I’ve been acting for 20 years. I started in theater. Poetry led me to theater. Theater led me to singing. And here I am. I do all these things because it makes me happy. And the hardest work I have is acting. But acting is mandatory for me because I’m a lover of words.”
It's good to talk.
