Inducted into Women Songwriters Hall Of Fame last night, though I couldn’t attend due tobeing under the weather it means the world to be recognized as a songwriter and knowing I’ve written many that are a part of the sound of peoples lives, crafting hooks that you can sing along to, and stories that resonate or have meaningful intent. Gospel royalty Keyondra Lockett accepted on my behalf after a rousing tribute performance of “It All Begins With You.”
“The Jody Watley songwriting catalog dates back to her Shalamar days co-writing songs like penning lyrics and melodies to (Full of Fire, Work It Out, Help Me, Playing To Win) and most significantly into her esteemed Grammy winning Solo career of blockbuster classics like (Looking For A New Love, Don’t You Want Me, Real Love, Friends to name a few and countless other gems in an ongoing career with over 100 songwriting credits to her name), that also includes the poignant “16” recorded by Destiny’s Child. Jody Watley received the BMI songwriter award “Medal Of Honor” in 1993 for over a million plays of songs in her songwriting catalog.”
