Thought of The Day. Sparkle and Shine.

Never let anyone dim your sparkle or shine. Leave some of it everywhere you go! -Jody Watley

Jody Watley. Sanctuary.

One of my favorites of the many songs I’ve written and recorded – and this collaboration with Soulpersona out of the UK (aka Morgan Howell). This is a timely, real and comforting song in often troubled times. As I say when performing it live..your space, your vibe – sanctuary is our home. Take those same vibes into the world..an environment of love and when you close the door..a safe place..for you, your significant others, family, children and so on.

I’ll be releasing this long version as a single – the short edit is available on my “Paradise” EP which is available at digital outlets worldwide. It’s a new era since this millennium (always surprised by those who are still waiting on the old model of the industry – it’s not coming back..)  and you don’t have to wait for commercial radio to make you aware of and/or quality  new music and video. Support independent music and artists. No rants, no controversy, no public romances to exploit ..just quality music.

I’ve been inspired to do a video for it..stay tuned!

Thought of The Day. Don’t Stress

 

love_

We never know what each day will bring as we put our best foot forward. Don’t stress over what you can’t control. With the hateful and divisive nature of the election, the results and the aftermath..in a current climate that the doors have been opened wider for those with hate in their hearts..don’t be that person. Like I sang  ‘It All Begins With You’ and wrote ‘The Beat Don’t Stop’ ‘Bed of Roses..get up get out..be strong..”  Be diligent, alert and safe in your surroundings but we all have to keep living life no matter the obstacles and potential barriers. Look out for your neighbors that might not look like you. Let’s all do our part to put love into the universe.

Jody Watley. Rock The Vote.

Someone unearthed this Rock The Vote PSA I did back in 1992 for MTV (when it was Music Television). Still true!

Jody Watley Performs a Solo Classic with Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra.

 

 

Here’s a snippet of one of my performances with the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra “Best Hits 80’s Meets Symphony..” singing one of my Top Ten hit singles “Everything.”

I wore a red suit and mock turtle neck from Theory as one who usually doesn’t wear the color and funked it up with street-style attitude with new red shades from a new line I stumbled across, nude Louboutin pumps and my signature jumbo hoops with added sparkle. Red in this case represents my passion for living and life..I’d had a custom tux made but it wasn’t ready in time..
