For the past 5 years, Essence has honored Black Women who are making major waves in the music industry and also in their communities. This year’s honoree was none other than Ms. Jill Scott.
“Jill Scott is the quintessential ESSENCE woman,” says ESSENCE Editor-in-Chief Vanessa K. DeLuca. “Like many of the female artists who inspired her – she has touched the collective soul of women across generations.”
This year’s celebration featured performances by Lianne La Havas, Brandy, MC Lyte, and the legendary Chaka Khan. BASSic Black Entertainment CEO, Adam Blackstone, served as Musical Director for all the performers for the evening. Full band and background vocalists provided by BASSic Black Entertainment.
