Jill Scott in Houston for Bailey’s Tour.

By M.Baker
Jill took the stage shortly before 9:30P to a crowd of 600+ lucky fans, and started her set with “The Real Thing” – it was so hot it literally set the fire alarms off! She followed with “Ephiphany” and “The Way”. The show was truly amazing, especially since she performed in front of a full band and horn section – which surprised a lot of people in attendance considering it was a free event. The big songs of the night were definitely “Crown Royal” – which was funny she sang since it was a Bailey’s sponsored show – but in her words “we have to live in the now…and it’s a metaphor song”! Other crowd favorites were “How It Make You Feel” – of course “Hate On Me” and “A Long Walk”. Following a quick break, Jill returned to the stage for an encore performance which included “Golden” and “He Loves Me”.

Following her 1 ½ hour performance, VIP’s were invited to a special room to enjoy more Bailey’s concoctions and a meet-n-greet with Jill. It was a fantastic show…all I can say is I can’t wait until she comes back through Texas again!
