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.

Thought of The Day. Hold On To Yourself.

Society gets people so messed up in many ways, especially now with the flip side of the positives that can come from social media and the media in general.

Not that I’m a shamen in any way – but sometimes it’s good to know we can all in some way potentially inspire another human being in a positive way. Don’t compare yourself to anyone- love yourself. Many will doubt you – just don’t let the doubter be “you” and don’t try to live someone else’s life.

This is what I shared on my platforms today.

“Be who you are- but know that it will change as you grow through life, don’t be afraid of that – your essence should always remain though no matter the changes of styles, age, and era.I always see “me” – always see “you” –No matter what your profession there will always be forces to try to move you away from you – hold on to yourself.” – Jody Watley – Wattage ⚡️

Jody Watley and SRL. Maximum Impact at Alameda County Fair 

What a night! We performed to a packed amphitheater on a day that was sizzling temperature wise and with a tight band, dance squad and the dynamic SRL. featuring Nate Allen Smith and Rosero the heat only increased. It was a special night with everyone singing and dancing in the aisles – punctuated by fireworks at the conclusion of the concert. Thank you Alameda County Fair, the great staff and fabulous audience.

Jody Watley bringing hits, style, soul and passion
