Oh, I know I know: It’s another Jill Scott post. What? I told y’all I’m a Jilly From Philly stan. From waaaay back. This truth ain’t new. But this video for Jill’s single, “Hear My Call” is. I told you a few weeks ago about her new album, The Light of the Sun, and my particular love for the single, “Rolling Hills,” a beautiful piece about a woman”s needs to guard her, um, assets. My other stand-out fav is “Hear My Call,” an incredibly moving ballad in which Jill makes a heart-wrenching plea to God to help her heal from bad decisions and relationships gone wrong and open her heart to a clear-eyed, everlasting love. The video spare, emotional, teary is exactly as I envisioned it. Jill, who co-produced it, hit it right on the nail.
I simply can not do the song or video any justice by explaining it, though. Watch and listen, and wave a church hand if you’ve ever been there before. I know I have.
Enjoy everyone and have a fine weekend.
And for all of my East Coast friends in the path of Hurricane Irene: Please be safe. I'll be wishing you nothing but love and light and lots of prayers that the storm passes you by with minimal damage to life and property.
