Three-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, New York Times best-selling poet, and critically acclaimed actress are only a few titles held by Jill Scott. Before having the #1 album in the country with The Light Of The Sun, performing at The White House, being named People Magazine's Top TV Breakout Star of 2010 and appearing on VH1 Divas alongside Aretha Franklin, the triple threat began her career collaborating with musical icons The Roots, Will Smith, and Common in the late 1990s. Jill recently released her highly anticipated 5th studio album WOMAN, which opened on the music charts at #1, giving Jill her 2nd consecutive number one album. After selling out a nationwide tour in 2015, Jill is currently working on Lionsgate’s Coco and FX’s Snowfall.
In the world of blockbuster movies, he’s Tyrese Gibson, but his music fans have known him for 18 years simply as Tyrese. Emerging on the R&B scene in the early 1990s, his debut album Tyrese went platinum and produced a single, “Sweet Lady,” that ultimately won him a Grammy for Best R&B Male Vocal Performance. Its breakout success also helped earn him a job as the host of MTV Jams. Tyrese recently shocked the music world when he announced that his album Black Rose, released in 2015, would be his last solo record.
Before Anthony Hamilton laid down the gospel as an R&B singer, the Charlotte, North Carolina native found his calling as a member of the church choir. Over two decades later, Hamilton has found his happy place on RCA Records. Following up 2011’s Grammy-nominated effort Back To Love and his 2014 Christmas offering Home For The Holidays, the R&B cantor maintains his Southern sensibility and poignant songwriting on his fifth studio effort What I’m Feelin,’ which was released in March to critical acclaim.
Tish Hyman’s debut album, Dedicated To:, premiered on Pitchfork on July 12 alongside the album’s second single, “Dreams” featuring Ty Dolla Sign & Fabolous, and reached 1 million Spotify streams within 30 days of its release. The album’s first single, Subway Art, premiered on The Fader in early 2015. Tish supported Jill Scott nationwide on 22 dates in the Winter of 2015. She also made her acting debut in Spike Lee’s latest flick, Chi-Raq, and penned records for Ty Dolla Sign (“Horses in A Stable”) Diddy (“Everyday”) and Fabolous (“You Made Me”).
