"official release - Jill Scott goes Platinum"


          

MUSIC SENSATION JILL SCOTT ADDS PLATINUM GLOW
AND THREE SOUL TRAIN NODS TO AMAZING DEBUT
"WHO IS JILL SCOTT" BREAKS ONE MILLION SALES MARK IN THE US!!!

HIDDEN BEACH RECORDINGS ARTIST GRABS THREE SOUL TRAIN NOMINATIONS ? MOST
FOR ANY NEW ARTIST THIS YEAR

Los Angeles, Cali…. Jill Scott, soulful vocal sensation and Hidden Beach
Recordings debut artist, has reached a new milestone in her amazing
career with the official platinum certification of her breakthrough
effort "Who is Jill Scott? Words & Sounds: Vol. 1" -- after only six
months in release. This honor, which is awarded by the Recording
Industry Association of America (RIAA) in recognition of more than one
million units sold, further cements the broad embrace Scott continues to
receive from music lovers everywhere.

But wait…the hits keep coming as Scott grabs three Soul Train Awards
nominations ? the most received this year by any new artist. The gifted
singer/songwriter is up for honors in the "Best R&B/Soul Album ?
Female," "Best R&B/Soul Single-Female" (for the gold-selling single
"Getting’ In The Way,") and "Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist"
categories. The nominations were announced at Paramount Studios on
January 30th. The Awards ceremony, produced by Don Cornelius
Productions, will be taped in Los Angeles on February 28 and broadcast
nationwide March 3.

"As always, we are extremely appreciative of sales awards as they are
driven by music fans, who have been our target for this creative
offering," says Steve McKeever, Hidden Beach founder. "It’s wonderful
that Jill’s uniquely intimate style and honest approach have struck a
cord with such a wide array of music lovers. Most importantly, and
while it may be hard to believe, we are confident that this is still
only the beginning; there is so much more to come as her career
continues to unfold."

"Jill Scott is this year's artist breakthrough success story," remarked
Epic Records Group President Polly Anthony, "and she has earned the
recognition and accolades she's received. Her fiercely individual style
and her determination to connect with her audiences have won her both
critical acclaim and an exploding fan base. Jill is a consummate
artist, and everyone at Epic is proud to be associated with her."

The driving force behind the album's success has been Scott's fans who
propelled the CD through a detailed grassroots campaign, and music
critics worldwide who have hailed "Who Is Jill Scott?" as one of the
year's best albums. In fact, the CD, which was released July 2000, was
named the No. 1 R&B album by USA Today, was on Rolling Stone's Top 50
Albums of the Year list, and was ranked in the Top 10 by The Los Angeles
Times, to name only a few.

And Jill Scott's news doesn't end here. Along with the Soul Train nods,
the artist has also been nominated for two BRIT Awards ("Best
International Newcomer" and "Best International Female Artist"), three
Grammy Awards (including "Best New Artist") and four NAACP Image Awards.

Scott, who performed on "Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on January 17th, is
scheduled to perform "A Long Walk" on the E! Sizzlin' Sixteen
television special set to air February 4th and "Late Night With David
Letterman" on March 12.

Celebrating Febuary as black history month..

black artists

Tyree Guyton-Born August 24, 1955, in Detroit MI;
Education: Studied art in the Franklin Adult Education program and at the
Center for Creative Studies, Wayne County Community College, and
Marygrove College; studied with Charles McGee and other artists.
Painter, sculptor, and mixed media artist.

The Heidelberg Project, bearing the name of the street on which it exists, was
started in 1986 by Tyree Guyton assisted by his grandfather, Sam Mackey (deceased) and
his former wife, Karen Guyton. Tyree was raised on Heidelberg Street and, at the age of 12,
witnessed the tragic effect of the Detroit riots - of which he claims the City of Detroit never
recovered. Though once racially integrated, many neighborhoods became segregated urban
ghettos characterized by poverty, abandonment, and despair.

The first house Tyree transformed, he called "Fun House". In 1991, the city conducted a
surprise attack against The Heidelberg Project, razing by bulldozers four of its houses, "Fun
House" and "Your World" among them. Amidst falling walls and ceilings, risking his life,
panic stricken Tyree salvaged only a few remnants of his original works. Stunned by this
violent act against his art after just being given the Spirit of Detroit award, Tyree grieved the
loss of the art he had labored to create and the city's unwillingness to hear his message.
Shortly after the demolition, Tyree lost his partner and sidekick, Sam Mackey


The Heidelberg Project has
created a safe haven. The area in
which the Heidelberg Project is
located, Detroit's Seventh Precinct, is
the third most dangerous area in
Detroit. However, during the life of
the Project, not a single incident of
serious crime has been reported on
the block on which the Heidelberg
Project lives.

much love,
Kyle
