Jill Scott Shares Her Light

This past Wednesday night, She Who Can Do No Wrong, otherwise known as Jill Scott, hosted a listening party for her new collection of words and sounds from Warner Brothers. The event took place to a packed crowd at Dominion in NYC’s Astor Place. The venue was packed with specially invited guests, all anxious to be amongst the first to get to hear new music from Ms. Scott. With rave reviews coming from her LA listening party – which had taken place two days prior – expectations were high and the room was filled with excitement.

The night started off with cocktails, Grey Goose-based concoctions called, appropriately enough, Light of the Sun (the same name as the new project) and a hot-ass DJ. Then, Jill took the stage, doing selections from her new CD. Along the way, she shared that Eve, Anthony Hamilton, Too $hort and Doug E. Fresh all will make appearances on the new project.

Pollen Nation Events & Floral, one of the world’s leading event planners (and the company I work for) did the decor and florals for the event, including a dramatic 8-feet tall cascade of roses, wisteria, orchids and hydrangeas for the stage. Enormous hydrangea and calla lily arrangements flanked the stage and candle light emanated throughout the room. The scene was perfectly set for an appearance by the one and only Jilly from Philly.

Backed by The A Group (the ladies from the “Shame” video), Jill shared her love of Grand Marnier and “diamond chip dick[s]”, the process of making the album, her feelings about old school beats, her feelings about her marriage (on the new song “Quick“) and everything in between.

My phone died during the show and I didn’t get images nor video. Luckily, Ebtheconcertjunkie and MsDramaTV caught some great videos, shown below. Additionally, Bleu Magazine snapped some great shots, also shown below.
