Jody Watley with Sheila E. Yoshi’s February 28, 2015 (c) 2015 Jody Watley
There was a moment during the night of the two sold-out concerts at Yoshi’s where I became choked up with emotion onstage during ‘Full of Fire’ – there was definitely a lot of love in the room at Yoshi’s for both shows for the new SHALAMAR (we rocked the house) and of course the Jody Watley selections as well – filled me with gratitude. It’s in the music!

Nate Allen Smith. Jody Watley. Rosero MCoy. Jody Watley – LIVE at BB King Blues and Grill 2/18/2015
Here’s a review of the concert from B.B. Kings New York. The new members of SHALAMAR ar Rosero McCoy and Nate Allen Smith. It’s going to take a minute for people to grasp that this is a new era of SHALAMAR. New unexpected chapters are about to be written with the surprise twist that no one saw coming becoming the legal and registered trademark owner. The chapter on the classic 3 lineup ended in 1983 and for me there was never a longing or a feeling of “the book was unfinished…” – the era ended as it was intended to. We briefly revisited a moment in the 90’s with Babyface and it didn’t pan out – for a reason. That legacy will always remain but it’s a new day and time. It’s exciting to bring youth, fresh vibes and energy into the mix wherever this journey leads. The universe and the business provided a new opportunity to begin new chapters with a new cast. SHALAMAR Reloaded.
This is true. People have been talking about me most of my life some good and some bad – but one is true ‘they’ keep talking and I keep doing. If we all did things worried about opinions of others – where would we be? Where would I be? Those opinions are irrelevant at the end of the day – never one to follow the crowd or popular opinion I say – you have a brain, instincts, savvy, smarts – use them! Who cares what someone else thinks, often the negative chatter is rife with fear, jealousy, envy and resentment anyway. If you believe in something or have a dream or goal for the right reasons – go after it.
My father would always tell me as a little girl “It’s not what others think about you – it’s what you think and believe about yourself.” A great lesson for life and self-esteem. Do You!
