Jill Scott 'Storytellers' Taping

On Tuesday, May 8 I was lucky enough to get tickets to see the incredibly talented Jill Scott tape her VH1 Storytellers.

It was an incredible performance and I loved the way Jill set up her tale. In front of an intimate audience, Jill took on different roles to sing some of her greatest hits. Instead of the usual singing & talking bits of an ordinary Storytellers show, Jill took it to a whole other level and showed off her acting chops as well. Dressed & wig'd as different characters, Miss Jill Scott performed short monologues that flowed right into her soulful songs for over an hour.
Her personas were varied and amusing, and her voice was on point as always. She sung great classics like her first single "Gettin In The Way," "He Loves Me," "The Way," her Grammy-winning "Cross My Mind," "Come See Me," "Crown Royal," "Quick," "Blessed," and my all-time favorite "Golden."

After seeing Jill Scott for the first time in Paris, France, it was nice to see her so close to home and so up-close-and-personal!
Cameras were strictly prohibited, but you know I never leave without a party favor, so I snapped a few pics anyway! ;)

Jill Scott: Storytellers airs this Monday, May 21st at 11pm on VH1.
