NBC’s “The Voice” is taking it to the next level, by inviting some of the music industries cream of the crop to mentor alongside they’re grade A coaches Latin sensation Shakira, R&B star Usher, rock star Adam Levine and country star Blake Shelton.
Just weeks after the announcement that Usher and Shakira will be returning (replacing Cee Lo and Christina Aguilera…again) Usher announced that when he returns, he’ll be doing it with a bang! Teaming up with Usher on the upcoming season of “The Voice,” is none other than Jill Scott.
EXTRA revealed that the show’s February 24th return will feature Scott as a mentor for team Usher.
Usher told “Extra’s” Renee Bargh, “That’s my secret weapon, incredible, as a writer, as a musician, as an actress, all those elements really help to prepare artists.”
Scott added, “When Usher calls, you take the call.”
Her advice to contestants? “Listen to your gut, follow your heart and it will lead you somewhere special.”
