Jill Scott will serve as a guest mentor for Team Usher during the new season of NBC’s The Voice, which kicks off later this month.
Usher recently told Extra’s Renee Bargh that Jill will be his “secret weapon” this season. “[She’s] incredible, as a writer, as a musician, as an actress, all those elements really help to prepare artists,” he says of Scott.
So what made Jill climb on board? The singer joked, “When Usher calls, you take the call.”
Before season six gets underway, Jill offered her best advice for contestants. “Listen to your gut,” she says. “Follow your heart and it will lead you somewhere special.”
The Voice premieres at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, February 24 on NBC.
