Thought of The Day. Understand Your Worth.


Thought I’d pass this reminder along!

Jody Watley. Shalamar Reloaded. Updates. Thoughts and Images

Spending time with my daughter Lauren who’s home visiting and just celebrated a birthday, as well as still proud of the recent shows with Shalamar Reloaded in California and Mississippi. Here are some highlight photo’s from the past week, music, concerts and family – remember don’t just make a living, create a life and try to fill it with good vibes and people as much and as often as you can. In this crazy unpredictable world, it’s more important than ever.

A thousand desperate phone calls of attempted sabotage – couldn’t shut us down. Shalamar Reloaded slaying wherever we go. Black Rodeo, Jackson Mississippi.

My daughter Lauren  –  I still look at her with joy, love and admiration today like I did back then when we did this photo session for a UK magazine.


Nothing like spending quality time. So happy she’s home for the week, still celebrating her birthday. My daughter Lauren and I girls day out.

I had a fan girl moment when Maxwell responded to my tweet and said I was still a thrill!


Flashed back on our milestone of releasing our first single “SlowDance” and the fabulous  single release party at Bryan Rabin and Adam XII Present: Giorgio’s on The Sunset Strip. Feels great to have a vision, plan and be able to execute it and see it come to fruition despite naysayers and obstacles.

Dare To Be. Thought of The Day.

Dare to Be

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!

Jody Watley and Shalamar Reloaded Turn It Out At State Fair. Review.


“Watley earned her standing ovation..she’s broadened her range and her voice is stronger than it was 30 years ago..”

“Shalamar Reloaded..treating the crowd to two original tunes SlowDance and O.R.I.G.IN.A.L both of which hold up to anything Watley or any incarnation of Shalamar has ever done.”
