LATEST: Soul star Jill Scott has been forced to cancel her planned fundraiser, due to bad weather.

Scott's BLUES BABE FOUNDATION was set to hold the event yesterday (23JAN05) at Philadelphia's Saks Fifth Avenue, where items once owned by such stars as Destiny's Child, Patti Labelle and Teddy Pendergrass were to have gone on auction, reports MTV. It has yet to be announced when the event will now take place.

The BLUES BABE FOUNDATION, launched in 2002 and named after Scott's grandmother, was established to nurture the artistic and academic pursuits of lower-income, college-bound students from ethnic minorities.
