On my play-list right now is this woman! I heart Jill Scott.

And I think I loved her more the day I met her after her performance recently in Detroit, MI. She was back-stage, chatting with actors Michael Jai White, Bill Dukes and some other people.

I greeted her in Setswana, “Dumela” and she lit up and responded “Dumela Mma“….we connected immediately….

We chatted about Africa *of course*, her HBO show that she shot in Botswana, her bundle of joy *son, Jett* and his terrible terrific 2’s *smile* & life….I thanked her profusely of her gift of music. I mentioned to her how each of her work resonated with me.

She told me how beautiful I was and of course, mentioned the “lips”….*blush*

I could not wait to see how “Hear Me Call” would turn out. Jill’s emotionally charged video for “Hear Me Call” is from of her #1 album “The Light of the Sun.” “Hear My Call” is co-directed by Jill Scott.

Here are the lyrics to the song:

Here I am again asking questions,
Waiting to be moved.
I am so unsure of my perception,
What I thought I knew I don’t seem to
Where is the turn so I can get back to what I believe in?
Back to the old me and

God, please hear my call.
I am afraid for me.
Love has burned me raw
I need your healing
Please, please, please.

I am such a fool
How did I get here?
Played by all the rules
Then they changed
I am but a child to your vision
Standing in the cold and the rain
Lost here in the dark
I can’t see my foot to take a step,
What is happening?
Oh, this hurts so bad. I can hardly breathe.
I just want to leave so…
