HAPPY BIRTHDAY this week to singer-songwriter-poet-actor and hometown honey Jill Scott, who does it all at 40 Wednesday. North Philly's favorite daughter has represented our fair city so well for so long, we wouldn't know where to start in running down her accomplishments. Suffice it to say, if this gorgeously laid-back diva sings, says or tweets it, we wanna be there.
In her stars? No stopping her now. More music, more writing, more mothering and definitely more love to give.
