Wattage Thoughts. Don’t Be Afraid To Rock Alone.

Thanks Ty Hunter for this quote – totally resonates. Don’t wait for approval from others on making moves or for others to be ready for your journey –

Shine on. Wattage!

Home Vibes.

Live Today – Each Day In Gratitude. Create an atmosphere great for your mind, body and spirit. These principles have always been a way of life for me and I feel blessed to be able to share that with you in creating these home products of ‘Sanctuary.’

We all have down days as well and lighting a candle – saying a positive affirmation is always a good pick me up.

.. Always defining myself for myself – my own way. Some get it, some don’t .. I’m here to live my life on my terms not to people’s opinions of me.” – Jody Watley

My first label Phonogram was not on board with my vision so we quickly parted ways..you’d think because I was in London it wouldn’t have been an issue but it was. Black artists are always often pressured to conform to more ‘relatable’ imagery. On my subsequent American debut and since..I’ve always navigated incorporating high fashion with edgy street style to varying results..but always what I wish to convey – hits and misses.. it’s all uniquely me.

Happy Anniversary ‘Everything’ – January 20.

In the excitement of Inauguration Day 2021, I forgot to post this as Happy Anniversary to “Everything” from my second album “Larger Than Life.” I’ve blogged previously that January has always seemed to be a great month for my music – and it’s my birth month as well.

I love performing this song live in concert, full version or unplugged it’s always a heartfelt part of my show and emotional fan favorite.

“Everything”

Peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart! My 6th Top 10 Hot 100 Single as a solo artist.

So much meaning and love. Life’s journey.

The amount of vitriol I’ve received in social media today just from sharing my joy – my pages – shows a lot of work on the path of love is yet to be done.

In Celebration of Love On This MLK Day.

I love this photo – the joy!

Always choose love – on this MLK Day and – every day!

In celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King & Coretta Scott King, founder of The King Center instrumental in making this a Federal Holiday – Happy MLK Day.

Let’s not forget Stevie Wonder, Labor Unions, Rep. John Conyers / Congressional Black Caucus, Southern Christian Leadership Conference & then President Jimmy Carter all instrumental for this day – only two other figures have Federal holidays (George Washington & Christopher Columbus ) . It takes a village. Keep going in the fight for justice, equality and greater humanity.
