Grammy-winning R&B singer Jill Scott leads a soulful night at Jones Beach on July 28 as her Summer Block Party washes ashore in Wantagh.

Joining Scott, to support her new album “The Light of the Sun”, will be Anthony Hamilton, Mint Condition, DJ Jazzy Jeff and host Doug E. Fresh.

Jill is an artist with an abiding, deep commitment to lyrical honesty and musical integrity. Simply put, if Jill Scott feels it, she writes and sings it. While vivid imagery, metaphor analogy are her stock in trade, there’s no pretense, no hiding. She’s upfront, in-your-face always real, using her own distinctive poetry to breathe life into words, digging inside to bring forth the accompanying emotion. It is that authenticity that has endeared Jill Scott to everyday music buyers who hear what she’s saying through her music and respond according. Folks who know the rough and tumble of life, love right, love wrong, passion misspent, passion fulfilled, lonely nights and empty days and everything in between declare, ‘Yeah, girl!,’ ‘Go ‘head on!’ and ‘I feel ya’. And in the tradition of the four albums that precede it, THE REAL THING is another cause for celebration for those who live for the real.
