Just after the show in my dressing trailer at Toucans — Pride event. As a longtime supporter of the LGBTQ community and human rights advocate with decades of love and support shown to me – to reciprocate the love is always special
Despite music/sound power outages at the Toucans Tiki Lounge Event.. I was totally fine to improvise and sing some familiar hits accapella as the crowd sang along, it was awesome .. show business is unpredictable just like life – you just keep it moving — everyone was apologetic, I laughed took it all in stride and said I guess we were too hot for the machine – didn’t get to do the house mixes we had planned.. that said, the vibe, the love, energy and roses were appreciated.
Much love to the gentleman who gave me this gorgeous bouquet. Thank you to Nate Allen Smith, John “Havic” Gregory and Rosero McCoy for not missing a beat even when there wasn’t one.
Every day offers beginnings. Each moment is a new sentence to the story of our lives. Some will have exclamation points, periods, question marks and the emoji of your choice – just keep going and creating the life you choose to live.
Jody Watley & SRL unveil the cover art by Los Angeles based artist Martin Lagirdam for the forthcoming new single “The Passion” mixed by legendary Italian remix producer Alex Di Cio expected to arrive around July 20, 2018 to various digital outlets.
“The artwork is inspired by the sacred heart. As the core of our being, with the theme of the song being a passion for living and life coming alive through the music and our connections – it felt right to have a vibrant and colorful art piece like this to represent the vibe of the song as the music, love and passion descends upon the city. The flames represent setting your soul on fire with the music and the things that make you feel alive. This cover art is something a bit more unexpected and outside the box for us this time – bold and unexpected. I became a fan of Martin’s work after following him on Instagram after he created a custom t-shirt for me. The beauty of his work in particular many themes that reflected the heart really spoke to me for this single…as well is it could be a cool statement tattoo and iconic emblem for the group usually associated with rock bands. The single has some standout guitar work by former Prince & NPG member Levi Seacer. I’ve connected with some incredible talent through social media and Martin is one. The logo’s were created by my longtime art director and collaborator the U.K. based Ray Easmon.” – Jody Watley
