Jody Watley and  legendary author Jackie Collins in 1998, on the heels of Collins releasing the novel “Thrill” and debuting her talk show Jackie Collins Hollywood. I was in fact thrilled to meet Ms. Collins as I’m a huge fan of her books. I will never be a red head again!

This photo is from my kitchen. I’ve always tried to create a sanctuary of love in my home, flowers, candles, laughter, good food and good vibes. When my children were little, their friends would always say our place was so peaceful and later soothing as they became teens. There’s a song called “Sanctuary” on the forthcoming “Paradise.” A positive attitude makes every day better and enables us to hopefully exude something positive in the world, and if you have children or grandchildren it’s like paying it forward in this crazy often stressful world and our encounters with agitated people – remember your attitude is YOUR choice and what better place than to surround yourself with joy than home?

I had the honor to duet with one my my music heroes Stevie Wonder in 1988 for his MTV Music Special “Characters.” As a 7th grader with a group called Black Fuzz (because we all wore big afro’s) we performed “Superstitious.” Fast forward to me singing with him – my smiles, nerves and shyness nearly got the best of me. Then add to it the fact Stevie sang one of my songs and knocked it out of the park, botched lyrics and all.  It’s a fond memory. It was also an honor to have shared the stage with Stevie Ray Vaughn and Salt n Pepa who were also musical guests.  Read the archived article from JET Magazine: HERE

As a songwriter, it’s always interesting to come across modern interpretations on my songs. I really like this one discovered on Soundcloud. Make sure to subscribe to my channel there, as well as other social media: Facebook/Jody Watley Official, Twitter.com/JodyWatley, Youtube/JodyWatley and Instagram/JodyWatley…I’m on Pinterest too, though not often.
