NEW. Jody Watley -Sanctuary Remix and Mashup Video.

 

Watch it Now:

 

I love this fan made video by The Fantasy Clinic – the video is a mashup of the teen me on Soul Train blended with current visuals created by Ray Easmon out of the U.K. The remix keeps the essence of the song with a nice deep house edge – which you know I live for!

Just Announced. Jody Watley at Sycuan Casino July 21.

Jody Watley and SRL Good Vibes From Coast to Coast.

I trust that amidst the various chaos and tragedies occurring somewhere in the world each day – you are reminding yourselves to control what you can and not stress over what is out of reach. Keep your patience, compassion and kindness always within your heart and remember to cherish and enjoy each day no matter the obstacles that you may face on any given day. It may be a simplistic outlook, however I don’t know know any other way to live or to encourage others. Laugh a lot, love hard including yourself..as well as my ‘Sanctuary’ reminds – “..fill these walls with happy times and fill these rooms with peace of mind..” and always good vibes into the universe. We should all work to be the change we seek in the most positive ways.

To bring you up to date on activities the past week:

I was honored at Long Beach Pride on May 21, 2017 by Senator Ricardo Lara with a California State Resolution. The LGBTQ community has always been a friend to me and my music throughout my career and I’ve always worked to reciprocate the love and support – before it was accepted in the mainstream.

We’ve arrived in May with spring in full bloom. Never take the simple things in life for granted..nature, the air we breath..good health and the family, friends and colleagues that bring positive energy into your life.

I’m looking forward to this months concerts and more music – really trying not to let what’s going on in the world and politics get me stressed and angry. It’s truly astounding what’s going on. Just when you think there’s been progress, there are always those who work endlessly to destroy progress, the working class, the elderly, education, arts, various rights and liberties..and the ‘isms persist. I just pray for humanity all the time and do my part to bring joy into the world.

I’ll be unveiling the very sweet concept video for “Sanctuary” tomorrow, Friday May 5. It’s a reminder of what’s important in life – and creating an environment of love and peace of mind.

In August, I can announce I’ve beed added to the bill with Peabo Bryson and Stephanie Mills at The Fox Theatre as a Special Guest for their Saturday Soul Series August 26…of course I’ll have SRL. with me as well for this great evening of music. Info: Here — Tickets
