Not only fabulous Jody Watley Art by Cat Soper : CatDezign from Australia but a very inspirational and motivational reason for doing it. Set a goal and smash it!
“DAY 251 – JODY- An IMAGINARIUM In 351 Days .. going to draw, paint, create everyday! This month I’m creating portraits of the people who have inspired me in many ways.
All photos referenced are from the internet with grateful thanks to the photographers.. – Jody Watley – her music and love of dance and fashion always inspired me. Her love dance and fitness got me moving everyday. If I had the chance to dance to work everyday I would maybe I should!”
When such things were based on achievement and not social media numbers. This was my second feature in Rolling Stone, this time more of a concept fashion and style feature being paired with an unlikely subject. The photo session took place in the Florida Everglades..I was so nervous, needless to say there were alligators in the water popping in and out, but it was all about the shot and being fierce. The crew did consist of a safety team and wranglers if needed. It didn’t take long to get the right take!
“If Jody Watley is looking for a new love, Roland Martin can certainly help her with the bait. She’s Jackie Wilson’s godchild, the ex-Shalamar chanteuse who’s already angling for her second Top 10 single as a solo artist. He’s the Jack Nicklaus of bass fishing, nine time Angler of the Year and sixteen-time winner of the Boss Angler Sports Tournament, and he’s rolling in the dough. He’s also the host of his own TV show, appropriately titled Fishing with Roland Martin.

Over on Instagram, really loved the comments in this post..hearing what Jody Watley Music was on playlists..originated by a fan who shared what he was listening to from 4 of of my albums. If you stopped at the first two and most commercial albums..you really are missing a lot of great music. Mix it up. Though streaming sucks for artists – I still recommend them for listening and checking out music you may have missed..and then go buy (download) to your collections. Read some of the comments to check out the diverse range..I love it when the deep cuts are mentioned..that’s a real music appreciator for any artist to go beyond the radio.
This concert for March 23, 2019 Pala Jam, San Diego at the The Pala Resort and Casiono is now – SOLD OUT. This will be one funky night of music classics.
1991 “Affairs Of The Heart” album – Music & Fashion Editorial in Harper’s Bazaar – before it was common to see artists in high fashion magazines. This was my third such feature – the first came with my solo debut.
Happy Music Anniversary to my solo debut “Jody Watley” released on February 23, 1987! “you know it’s funny.. funny how times flies..as I watch days turn into years..” and decades – still me..keeping it new! Thanks to those who still rock and roll with me and my music in all of it’s continued incarnations beyond my debut into the NOW!
Eternal thanks to all involved who helped me execute my vision and exceed all expectations.
It’s not years of life of music – it’s the life in living life and good music which has no expiration date and continues to be discovered and appreciated.
