Singer Jill Scott married Mike Dobson last night, which was a huge surprise to her fans, who didn't even realize she was dating anyone.
The soulful Philly songstress has built her successful music career singing about the trials and triumphs of love, life and womanhood, and now she’s found her happily ever after with a new husband by her side. One of handful of celebrities who’ve managed to keep their private life out of the spotlight, Scott has done so for most of her career. Jill’s nuptials may come as a surprise to some, but it is surely a celebratory moment for fans and music lovers who have had a front row seat to her life through her passionately personal lyrics for over a decade.
Although Jill herself has yet to speak on her recent walk down the aisle, video clips of her big day have surfaced on social media by way of DJ Mars, who is a close friend of the groom and kept the party going at their reception. Per usual, Jilly from Philly was gorgeous in a simple but stunning white wedding gown with a plunging V-neckline and her gorgeous locs pinned back into a bun.
Speaking to a room of filled with close friends and family at the private affair Jill’s new husband Mike Dobson was in awe of his blushing bride as she smiled from ear-to-ear standing by his side. “I teared up when she came down but I don’t wanna tear up now,” he says with a huge grin.
In a separate clip, Mike thanks their loved ones for joining the to celebrate their union as his Mrs. happily smiled on next to him. “We love you, we appreciate you and we want to celebrate this night with you. It’s not gonna end until we say it ends.”
DJ Mars also shared a short video clip of the newlyweds cutting their wedding cake together.
The groom surprised his lovely bride with a live performance by Big Daddy Kane — one of her favorite artists.
So,Mike Dobson called me and said I'm going to surprise my wife during the reception and have Big Daddy Kane perform. He then says,"Mars you call Kane to work it out". So im gassed because I'm on the phone strategizing with arguably one of the best rappers period(top 5 of anyone's list)! Me and Big Daddy Kane on the phone,im geeked! No one knew but me and the husband knew he was about to perform. Dude walks in and they didn't even recognize him until he starts rapping. Her face is soooo priceless! #jillscott #mikedobson #bigdaddykane #djmarsapproved
Congratulations to Jill and Mike on their nuptials. Living life like it’s golden just took on a whole new meaning!
