The headline dates start June 24 in Oxon Hill, Md., and continue until Aug. 18  in Temecula, Calif.
Scott is not only a Grammy-winning singer, but an accomplished actress, who notably starred in Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?” and HBO’s “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency.” She also did voice acting in the video game “Grand Theft Auto IV.”
