Hometown Diva debuts new album

Peggy Scott Adams

By Jacquie Miles

Pensacola native, Peggy Scott, known as “The Little Lady with the Big Voice” is back on the tour scene again, bigger and better than ever with her latest single, ‘Not Good Enough To Marry,’ from her current CD ‘Life After Bill.’  The music industry and her many fans have long awaited for her return and return she has with one of the best projects of her career.

Peggy Scott-Adams began her professional career in 1968 collaborating with Jo Jo Benson to record three consecutive million seller, “Lovers’ Holiday,”Pickin”, “Wild Mountain Berries” and “Soulshake”.  She later gained success as a solo artist by recording with several major record labels.

Peggy has toured the US and Europe, performing at notable venues like the famed Apollo Theater, Madison Square Garden, The Howard Theater, The Spectrum and more.

After moving to the West Coast in the early 1980’s, Peggy married Robert L. Adams Sr., a successful politician and businessman and thus decided to take a temporary hiatus from her musical career.

In 1990, after a lengthy show biz absence, Peggy was invited to do studio work with the late and great Ray Charles.  After recording demo material for another female artist, Peggy received another phone call from the “Genius” himself informing her that he could not resist the chemistry and would like to duet with her. Charles could not resist calling her a third time to collaborate with him on “If you Give Me Your Heart” on his “Strong Love Affair” project.

Peggy was contently working alongside her husband as a mortician until another phone call in 1996. The call was from the late Jimmy Lewis and it ignited her phenomenal comeback with the Grammy nominated album, “Help Yourself”, which consisted of the smash hit “Bill”.  It was the most controversial, most talked about and most requested song of 1997, prompting interviews with major print media and television shows such as The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN Showbiz Today, and Fox Television stations.

Her powerful vocal performance on “Bill” impressed movie producers Martin Scorsese and Clint Eastwood so much that they included her in the 2003 documentary “Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues” and the five set CD collection of 120 greatest blues renditions of all times.

In 2007 Peggy Scott Adams was appointed as the National Ambassador of Music for the World Conference of Mayors.  That same year she partnered with famous shoe designer, Eric Baggio and now features her personal collection of shoes BAGGIO for Peggy located in the Fox Hills and Del Amo Malls in Los Angeles, California.

Needless to say, Peggy is very grateful for her success, but states that she was most excited about her first inspirational project, “God Can And He Willl”.  Being a devout believer, Peggy states, “without a shadow of a doubt this project was commissioned and ordained by God.  I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but I do know who holds tomorrow”.
