JILL SCOTT HOSPITALIZED Grammy Nominated Singer Forced To Miss Opening Dates of Sting Tour Due To Illness
Philadelphia...Hidden Beach recording artist Jill Scott was hospitalized this past weekend in Philadelphia with a lung infection. After several grueling months of promotional dates and concert performances, Scott fell ill on May 5th, forcing the organic soul singer to miss the first two dates of the Sting tour. Scott, whose debut album, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1, has reached platinum status, was recently booked as an opening act for Sting's North American tour. The tour kicked off on May 5th in Washington, DC.
Scott deeply regrets letting down her ever-increasing and loyal fans in DC, a market that has supported her since her debut. But Scott will be able to resume the tour, according to her physicians. While there has been no determination as to when Scott will be released from the hospital, doctors expect her to fully recover.
With the release of Who Is Jill Scott?, the singer's soulful sound has been embraced by a broad fan base, building up from underground music lovers to pop fans. In fact, People Magazine has just named Scott as one of this year's "50 Most Beautiful People."
The Sting tour is scheduled to continue until May 26th. And you can expect to catch a healthy Jill Scott in a market near you soon.
