- New Jill Scott song
Jill Scott has released a new single and video for the first time in 4 years. The bluesy "You Don't Know", is a soulful tale about love.
In a recent interview with Billboard, Scott, who has branched out to acting, and was recently in the Lifetime movie With This Ring, said the album is "closer than it's ever been. But I don't think my gut is finished. I haven't emptied everything out. This is my baby, you know, and it takes me some time to relinquish the reins. I might come up with another song or two. I don't know."
See the video for "You Don't Know" below.

- Win a private performance by John Legend
You can win a private John Legend concert at your wedding, event or party. Not just an evening of John’s vocal stylings, but also the chance to hang with John at your special event. Each entry goes toward rebuilding the auditorium at the former South High School in Springfield, OH through the Show Me Campaign.
The Show Me Campaign, launched in 2007 by Grammy-award winning artist John Legend, works to break the cycle of poverty by supporting programs that help to provide every child with a quality education, spreading awareness about the issues, and inspiring citizens to take action. In the United States, the Show Me Campaign works to give every child access to a quality education through the promotion of scalable, proven solutions and programs. In Africa, Show Me has supported holistic development projects in the past and currently sponsors secondary school scholarships for girls. Through the Show Me Campaign, John Legend hopes to raise enough funds to renovate the auditorium at the former South High School, which is being converted into an educational community center.
