I’m absolutely thrilled to make this announcement.

Honoree Letter Black Music Honors:

On behalf of the Honoree selection committee for the Black Music Honors television special, we are pleased to notify you that we would like to honor Jody Watley with the prestigious R&B/Soul award on August 18, 2017 at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville, Tennessee otherwise known as Music City! The R&B/Soul award is presented to African American icons in the music industry that have made significant contributions in the shaping, building, and longevity of American Music.

Black Music Honors is a 2-hour musical honors special produced by Central City Productions, Inc. under the leadership of Don Jackson, with productions that include “Stellar Gospel Music Awards”, “Black College Quiz”, “Stellar Tribute to the Holidays”, and more. Black Music Honors was created to highlight and celebrate the accomplishments of those African Americans that have played a major role in shaping the Black music industry. By honoring Jody Watley, we will be able to show appreciation for the exceptional music she has created to enrich the world.

Industry greats that were honored at the inaugural taping include Dionne Warwick, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Staxx Records, Clarence Avant, and Big Daddy Kane. This 2-hour special will air in national broadcast syndication during the entire month of September 2017. We are a firm believer in teaching and preserving the foundation that has been laid for the future generation.

Ticket proceeds from this event will be donated to The National Museum of African American Music which was founded to recognize the many contributions African-American artists have made in shaping the soundtrack of American music. You can visit their website at http://nmaam.org. 

Congratulations to the other 2017 honorees:  Donnie McClurkin, Slick Rick, Oleta Adams, and R&B Group Guy. The show will be hosted by Rickey Smiley.

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.

Jody Watley Sanctuary Fuchsia 4 Final

One the great things about this era is when you want to watch a video, you don’t have to wait for it to appear on a network, or if you want to hear a song, you can just stream it (Spotify, Aple Music, etc)  or even better download it from one of the online outlets (iTunes, Amazon) – though streaming is outpacing paid downloads as the way fans get music. Times change and I continue to change too! The music is there within reach all the time.

Sanctuary, quality soul music with meaning…the kind people who don’t really support new music to begin with say is not being made – it’s here, just like I am!

These were the limited edition candles we did last year.
