ESSENCE, the premier brand for African-American women, will kick off a year-long commemoration of the 45th anniversary of ESSENCE magazine in 2015 with an unforgettable Black Women in Music GRAMMY Awards Week celebration.
Now in its sixth year, Black Women in Music will honor GRAMMY Award-winning singer-songwriter Jill Scott for her incredible achievement, singular artistry and powerful storytelling.
"Jill Scott is the quintessential ESSENCE woman. Like many of the female artists who inspired her, she has touched the collective soul of women across generations," said ESSENCE Editor-in-Chief Vanessa K. DeLuca.
For the first time, ESSENCE will invite a passionate community of music fans to join a host of industry influencers for the invitation-only event held on February 5, 2015, which will include an exclusive performance from Scott as well as several featured performances representing the classic eras in music —the '70s, '80s, '90s and beyond.
