Jill Scott Shows Off Her Old College Self, Remakes "Lovely Day" For RAOK Week

​ ​ ​ ​

 

Wonder what Jill Scott was like back in her college days?  Well now that she's turning 40 this year, she's reflecting on her past.  Check out the pic she tweeted inside, plus her new Random Acts of Kindness campaign....

Fab chick Jill Scott spent New Year's Day reflecting on her past.  She turns 40 April 4, so she decided to post a pic of her and her then-boyfriend during her days at Temple University.  Cute pics.

 

Meanwhile, Jill Scott’s rendition of the Bill Withers classic “Lovely Day” is being used by her label Hidden Beach to inspire a Random Acts of Kindness and Volunteerism campaign.

Hidden Beach explains the video saying:

“The new science of Happiness says that performing Random Acts of Kindness raises Serotonin – the bodies “feel good” chemical. We used kids in the video to depict the giving nature of the campaign. As we kick off the New Year, we wanted to remind everyone that the spirit of the holidays can continue every day of the year.”

The “Lovely Day” music video was directed by newcomer Alex Magana in San Fernando Valley and stars a cast of unknown child actors from Los Angeles. And the track appears on The Original Jill Scott from the vault vol. 1, which was named Best of 2011 by iTunes US and UK.

The Randomness:

1.  A shirtless President Obama was spotted playing some rough beach football. PICS

2.  Ludacris is opening a new Chicken & Beer restuarant in Atlanta's airport Concourse D. STORY

I love me some Jilly Jill but

I love me some Jilly Jill but girl some songs should never be remade and Bill Withers classic LOVE DAY is one of them!! this video, though visually sweet with all the little ones on display the song is just hard to hear! Never remake a classic unless you can match the level of quality heard in the original recording. see remakes by: 1) Luther Vandross "A House Is Not A Home" 2) Anita Baker "You Belong To Me" 3) Avant & Keke Wyatt "My First Love" 4) Mario "snippet" "Rolling In The Deep"

Factr Check: Jill is no longer with Hidden Beach and hasnt been for a while. Anything released by Hidden Beach with Jill's name on it she DOES NOT get any monies from. Including the newly released album "The Vault". She now has a distribution deal with Warner Brothers...partnered with Blue Baby. Just thought you should know

Love Jill,but this picture

Love Jill,but this picture show, that she can be a healthier weight. I hope she slims it down so that she's healthier. As someone who had to cut out garbage to lose 60 pounds and maintain a healthy weight (not skinny, just fit and healthy), I find it liberating to not have to wear tents and call it a dress. I'm sure she can do it, as she's lost so much all ready!

If that's her, she really needs to loose a lot of weight. There is another whole person underneath all that fat. But she can sing.......alllll-right
