Jody Watley. Classic Thursday.

#tbt 1990 Singing “After You, Who” Cole Porter jazz at the first Elizabeth Taylor Amfar Event(later became one of the biggest yearly events and fundraisers for HIV\Aids). I cherish the handwritten note she sent me with a bouquet of flowers after.A real deal Icon, film legend and activist so honored to be

I think I’ll be adding to set list Blue Note Napa concerts in January- my love and appreciation of jazz comes from my parents who played it all the time when I was little – more than any other music in the house. My daughter loved to do her homework to Ella Fitzgerald and Stan Getz when she was in junior high … often when playing jazz in the car with other children- other kids were like “what kind of music is THAT?!” Lol – my way of also planting the seed of the various genres of music..

Here’s a video of my performance Live on Arsenio Hall that same year!

Jody Watley Classic Image and Thought of The Day.

Mirrors.

Don’t ever dim your shine to make others feel better. Shine on from the inside -out. Like my Dad always said as well be a person of substance and always value yourself. ✨

Here’s a #TBT 2008 VOGUE Italia the historic “The Black Issue”

Being included in this issue is another benchmark in my ongoing solo career that I’m very proud of because of the music artistry – a childhood dream that became a reality.

Work hard – keep shining.

Jody Watley. A Special Day and Young Man-My Son Arie

Posted on my social media pages yesterday for his birthday!

Today is a blessed day in my life – the birth of my son Arie, the best son in the world to me!

Arie is one of the lights in my life and I know I am in his Raising Arie and his sister Lauren has and continues to enrich my life. I’m so proud of the young man he has become and the man I know he will continue to be.

Jody Watley Weekend Greetings.

I posted this on my Instagram and Facebook- say hello!

Black Music Honors aired for the final time today on Bounce-such gratitude to receive those roses while I’m here to appreciate them. The Black Music Honors TV show in it’s second year has class and soul. The proceeds benefit the building of the National African American Museum of Music being built in Nashville, Tennessee.

The other great thing about this show was their going outside of the box beyond the usual artists that are repeated over and over not just Honors but performers as well. Thanks again Sevyn Streeter and Vivian Green – both have new projects out so please support those wonderful ladies and artists.

I’m going to upload my full speech – they had to edit though I didn’t get the play off music!

There’s a lot of not so positive things going on in the world – Be open to good things..don’t get stuck in a rut.

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 it..it’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.

Squad.

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.

Chillin’

Morning in need of extra coffee..

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