“Jody Watley is a name in American music that is widely recognized, yet still not fully appreciated. Her ingenious, stylish videos and multi-threat talents raised the bar not just for dance music, but for women in the business – especially women of color”…Read the full feature: The Shadow League Music, Sports and Culture
March is coming to a close and it’s been productive with writing, recording and other projects. I hope it’s been a good month for you – and if not..be encouraged not discouraged because every day presents a new opportunity to achieve a new goal or to implement a new plan, whatever that may mean to you and your life. It could be budgeting, moving to a new job, eating healthier, losing weight…it’s whatever it is for you. Some days can be blue – full of doubt and disappointment – the next can be filled with hope and enthusiasm. Push yourself. That’s what I do. I don’t always hit my marks, but you can trust and believe I’m always keeping it pushing – doing, trying, getting back up..and as my Mom would say “Change the tape you play in your head.” It’s great advice and so it’s in my heart to put that out there again today as I write this blog. Keep your head up – the beat don’t stop…just keep it moving on and on and on..and..
I’m included in the cast of the new concept show FULL OUT. Created by Rosero’s (of SRL) son Eric McCoy, we can’t say too much about it but we did shoot the pilot for it this weekend. I have a soft spot for kids and this is a lot of fun, terrific concept. They all also adore me..passed along from their parents and also getting to know me and so that makes me feel uplifted as well. Like ripples on a pond. Some have worked with me previously as a part of our universal all age dance squad, and so we are all looking forward to more.

We don’t want to be the Black Eyed Peas, BEP though we wouldn’t mind their success as a contemporary trio making eclectic fun music with style!
MUSIC is elixir for the soul, wings to imagination, hope when feeling despair, joy when you want to dance, melody when you need a good cry, a soundtrack for love, romance, celebration, revolution, self empowerment – and motivation when it’s time to kick into grind mode.

It was early and we were performing this for the first time..after nearly missing the show being stuck in traffic. All in all – a good time was had by everyone! I’m thrilled at the reception and enthusiasm for me as a veteran solo artist and to parlay that goodwill to this new group is very fulfilling. The Mood – is great!
