Grammy Award winning singer/actress Jill Scott preps two movies, a cartoon series, a new bra for her Ashley Stewart intimate apparel line, new album The Light Of The Sun as well as main stage inclusion in the upcoming Lilith Fair tour. Scott was recently seen as lead role in HBO's critically acclaimed The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency, directed by the late Oscar winning director Anthony Minghella. Jill and the show have garnered rave reviews and nominations from the Golden Globes, IPA Satellite Awards to the American Film Institute (AFI). Scott most recently nominated for NAACP Image Awards Outstanding Actress alongside 2 others the series earned including Outstanding Drama Series and Supporting Actress in Drama Series. This gears the triple threat artist for a huge 2010 year.

Scott's next film project, Lifetime's Sins Of The Mother which bows February 7th, revolves around a grad student who returns home to face her abusive, alcoholic mother - played by Scott - only to discover that her mom is sober and has a 3-year-old daughter and new life. Directed by Paul Kaufman and Executive produced by Damon Lee, the telepic is based on the novel Orange, Mint & Honey and adapted for television by Elizabeth Hunter.

Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too? releases April 2nd and returns Scott to the widely successful movie alongside Janet Jackson, Michael Jai White & Tyler Perry. Having their annual one-week reunion, four close couples gather together for a group vacation at the Bahamas to share news about their lives and relationships. Their intimate week in paradise is disrupted by the unexpected arrival of Sheila's (Scott) ex-husband, Mike, who looks forward to breaking up her marriage with Troy. While Sheila deals with her problem, the others realize they too are not immune to the challenges of commitment and fidelity.

Marvel Animation and BET Networks have teamed up to create the epic animated mini-series Black Panther out mid 2010. Scott voices X-men Heroine Storm alongside Golden Globe nominated actor Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond), Kerry Washington (Last King of Scotland) & Golden Globe winning actress Alfre Woodard (American Violet).

Ashley Stewart's Butterfly Bra inspired by Jill Scott was widely successful garnering great coverage in Women's Wear Daily, Instyle Magazine and US Weekly. The exclusive joint venture between Scott's firm J Heather Inc. & Ashley Stewart stores saw the bra line expand nationally to over 220 stores. Founded from Scott's need for support, comfort & style, a new innovative plunge style bra has been developed, and will be released nationally in the 2nd Quarter of 2010.

Following up to 2007's Grammy nominated Gold certified album The Real Thing, Jill is currently in the studio recording her 5th album titled The Light Of The Sun. The album embarks Jill on a flurry of emotional poetry as both her career and personal life have skyrocketed with success in Hollywood and birth of firstchild. The album is expected to be a Spring/Summer 2010 release, just in time for Scott's return to the stage.

Returning to her first love, live performance, Scott will be a featured performer alongside her colleagues Sarah McLachlan, Mary J.Blige, Sheryl Crow, Erykah Badu, Colbie Caillat at the 2010 Lilith Fair Tour; a celebration of diverse female voices across all genres.
