Is there anything Jill Scott can’t do? The Philly-bred songstress has captivated millions of fans with her honey coated vocals and wowed us with her acting prowess in “Why Did I Get Married” and her own HBO mini-series “No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.” In 2010, Scott used both her talents, going behind the mic to voice the baddest bish in the Marvel universe, Ororo Munroe/Storm in the 2010 “Black Panther” animated series.
Helmed by producer Reginald Hudlin, the all-star cast included Djimon Hounsou as T’Challa/Black Panther, Kerry Washington and Alfre Woodard. In an interview with the L.A. Times, Hudlin recalled Scott’s reaction when he asked her to voice the lightning wielding mutant:
“I was explaining Storm to her and she goes, ‘Oh, you don’t understand. When I was a kid I made a list of things that I wanted to do … and one of them was to play Storm. So, I was happy when you called, but I wasn’t surprised.’ I was like ‘Wow!’ This is destiny. This is fantastic!”
