Jody Watley – Winter Nights EP Update

Really appreciate the early support of U.K. Soul radio and music blogs supporting independent artists. Special thank you to Alex Di Cio’ who really nudged me with his remixes and encouragement.

Thank you to those of you downloading, listening, playlisting and sharing with your friends.

This is quality music without the machine, industry gate keepers or corporate partners – as I’ve been doing since 95.

Onward!

This tribute post is everything. To rarely be acknowledged for my influence is something I’ve gotten used to and never expect it at this point so this is very special to me.

Rewind. Live Performance of ‘It All Begins With You.’

 

I posted this yesterday on my social media in celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This performance was while pregnant with my son on The Arsenio Hall Show in 1992 while promoting my “Affairs Of The Heart” album -also performed that night was my single “I’m The One You Need.’ The Arsenio Hall Show was always a great place to showcase music for black artists simply on a merit basis – long before the  “what are the social media numbers, how many followers?” The gatekeepers of today would never allow a show like this.

Around this time I’d performed this single on Good Morning America on MLK Day. My performance earned me an invitation to The White House as the President and First Lady were so moved. It’s an honor I’ll never forget. I also used the opportunity to speak about equality, and support for public education – investing in our youth; definitely inspired by Dr. King. Many know I also recorded this song in honor my my father Rev. John Watley Jr.

“..the more of life I live to see, I feel more like a child – the lessons that I have to learn, I know will take a while – and if it takes eternity I hope your plans for me, surround me with a gift of joy and make my days complete..embrace me with your love and help me rise above – show me the way to keep the faith so I won’t forget to say that it all begins with you..”

We all have the ability to bring positive changes in our lives and in the world each day not to mention the ability to keep the faith and get through barriers and obstacles. You don’t have to be religious (I’m not) to believe in a higher power than all of us and the inner will we have when we keep the faith.

Wattage!
