Her latest single, “Fool’s Gold,” proves how love can make us all look foolish at times. And “Slowly Surely” was Scott’s way of leaving a bad situation and facing the fear that comes from uncertainty.
Overall, Scott’s show allowed her to prove why she continues to be one of the top soul artists 15 years after her debut. She knows that love is a constant journey and her fans are more than willing to join her for the ride.
