The Voice Season 6: Jill Scott Joins Team Usher As A Mentor
Grammy award winning singer and actress, Jill Scott, will be among the talented musical support team on the upcoming season of NBC’s hit show The Voice.
The Voice returns to NBC on Feb. 24th after the 2014 Winter Olympics. Shakira and Usher will rejoin judges Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.
During a conversation with Extra’s Renee Bargh, Usher shared that his reason for asking the “Golden” singer to join him. “That’s my secret weapon, incredible, as a writer, as a musician, as an actress, all those elements really help to prepare artists,” shared Usher.
Jill Scott has a mutual level of respect for Usher because she added that she didn’t have to be convinced to join the show.
The Philadelphia native is a seasoned performer. Since 1999, Scott has entertained fans through spoken word, provocative lyrics and pure talent.
When asked what advice she had for the contestants, her reply was to, “Listen to your gut, follow your heart and it will lead you somewhere special.”
Below is one of the many reasons that Jill Scott is qualified to be a mentor.
