Catch Jody Watley LIVE in Philadelphia at The Tower Theater, “A Night of Timeless R&B” with Lillo Thomas and The System November. 15, 2014
From United Kingdom based interior designer Nik Ramli – a wonderful 15 second “PARADISE” tribute! It’s so awesome to see the love directly from those I made the record for – the true fans and appreciators of music, the journey, life, style, love and beyond. Anything you can do in life to inspire others is a blessing and a gift -and I’m very grateful. #itsinthemusic
There are few artists that can say they’ve had a song “Jody” (by Jermaine Stewart), a top “The Jody” by Christos Garkinos for HSN, and now a designer shoe – that’s me Jody Watley.
I met shoe designer Jerome C. Rousseau on the dance-floor at Giorgio’s in Hollywood on the Sunset Strip. He was so shy, sweet and modest telling me how my style and integrity have inspired him since he discovered my music. As soon as discovering his talent and design, I’ve become a major fan of his. His shoes have a special quality and as I told Billboard Magazine “You feel like a Queen with an edge.” It’s fantastic that Billboard is going outside the box and recognizing at last the connection between style, fashion and music. What caught their eye is the younger artists and actresses rocking ‘Jerome C. Rousseau’ on the red carpet. Move over Louboutin!
Little did I know, he’d do a tribute shoe to me “The Watley”..in typical understated fashion I was in attendance at a trunk show at his Hollywood atelier — when he quietly said “I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve designed a shoe in your honor.” I’d already ordered the shoe on display. Turns out he was on the money! You can order your “Watley” from his Fall 2014 Collection.
Lee Bailey has always been a consistent supporter of my music and career, dating back to when I was a member of Shalamar, and he had a popular segment that played on stations across the country “Lee Bailey’s Radioscope.” He was one of the first to interview me when my solo debut ‘Jody Watley’ was released in 1987. I’m very thankful for his continued support of my music, perseverance and artistry. #itsinthemusic
