Star Spotlight Jill Scott’s radiant smile and golden personality has undoubtedly made her a household name so it’s no surprise that ESSENCE magazine chose her to grace the cover of their October issue. Check out Jill Scott’s stunning cover shot here!

The three-time Grammy® Award winning singer-songwriter, New York Times best-selling poet and critically acclaimed actress stars in the upcoming Lifetime Original Movie “Steel Magnolias” alongside an all-star cast that includes Queen Latifah and Phylicia Rashad. Jill takes on the role of “Truvy”, the owner of the beauty shop where the women convene to chat about life’s trials and triumphs. This isn’t Jill’s first gig on screen — the Philadelphia native has also appeared in other movies including "Hounddog", "Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married?" and "Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too?"
