Jody Watley. A Palm Springs Private Event and Life Musings.

A good time was had by all at a private event in Palm Springs, California this past weekend.

I used to go there frequently for weekend getaways with my daughter, son and their friends.

When you can do’s nice to give yourself breathing room – even when it’s work…now more than ever with so much divisiveness being driven at every turn it seems-take care of your spirit and mind with nurturing and love.

in this case they event attendees were treated to a few Jody Watley solo hits -great hotel, staff, food and vibes.


The fellas. Rosero McCoy, Nate Allen Smith who filled in for an injured John “Havic” Gregory and Eric McCoy.

Showtime vibes.

Jody Watley featuring SRL. They also support the Jody Watley solo brand-of course.

A few photos from the Meet and Greet.

Great staff, I had to gift her the “Jody” hat and take a photo, she kept singing my songs. All love – and I appreciate these moments and the love.


Morning in need of extra coffee..

“I’m going home now..where are my keys?!”
