A Command Performance for The Queen of Soul: Aretha Franklin.

With the Queen of Soul #ArethaFranklin at her annual Christmas Party in Detroit -it was an elegant and loving event-a night to remember for real! . In our journey and history (most don’t know about) she reminded me I gave her my high school graduation photo and signed it to her and that she still has it…I gushed about what an honor it was to sing for her and thanked her for believing in me before I was a professional artist myself and that I loved her – she saw something in me early on and I’ll never forget that or the meaning of that -Then- When she looked Nate and Rosero of #SRL Shalamar Reloadedafter I introduced them to her she smiled and said “Alright Ms.Jody!” 😊❤️️ We both laughed. She looks beautiful too by the way!

Jody Watley and SRL – A Soulful Blend

It has been and exciting year full of concerts, new music and video. Jody Watley was just named one of the Greatest Dance Club Artists of All Time by Billboard Magazine. You know you’re in for a good time whenever she hits the stage  in a genre blending catalog that covers Pop, R&B/Soul, Disco, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Ambient and Electronica with a message always rooted in love. That’s inspiration.

Jody Watley and the hot new trio SRL with Nate Allen Smith and Rosero McCoy are set to return to the stage with their soulful blend of music and sleek choreography to the stage in recently announced concerts including the just announced return to B.B. Kings New York in Times Square. Here are the new series of promotional flyers for BB Kings NYC.

Jody Watley. November Update.

In case you’ve missed posts – out now is the new single and video “The Mood” from my new group SRL – Shalamar Reloaded featuring Nate Allen Smith and Rosero McCoy. We formed in 2015 and have performed countless sold-out concerts in the USA to rave reviews, Japan (Tokyo and Osaka), Brazil, London (Let’s Rock London, Happy Day Music Festival), Netherlands (Amsterdam’s Melkweg). We just did 2 TV shows in Washington DC as a group (WUSA9 and Roland Martin NewsOneNow), I did 2 solo TV appearances (Fox5DC and ABC7 Good Day Washington). There are numerous blog reviews and interviews like this one on ABCNews RadioOnline, and our second special aired on SIRIUSXM ‘The Groove’ with BK Kirkland October 29. Get in The Mood – iTunes

My most recent solo release is the critically acclaimed “Paradise” as well as ‘Dancer’ Remixes available at digital outlets worldwide. I’d still like to do a video for ‘Sanctuary’ and or ‘The Dawn.’ In this era there really are no rules with regard to releasing music and how long a project lives in the social realm. Youtube is the place for video releases no more waiting for networks to play it. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel: Here I’m still amazed at how behind the times some fans remain in how they discover and keep up with artists they like – speaking of veteran artists like me primarily. We live in an information age..but some don’t use tools of reading and research no matter the topic to keep up or simply get informed.

After performing with Tokyo Philharmonic Symphony I’m inspired to make my next solo release symphonic. It will take time and I’ll probably do a crowd-funding for it due to the nature of recording a project like that. Stay tuned. As well, check out my recent collaborations with Dam-Funk from his ‘Invite The Light’ collection (Virtuous Progression) and French Horn Rebellion (Dancing Out, Cold Enough)..and I’ll keep you posted on my recent recorded duet ‘A Million Miles” with folk artist and sculptor Peter Harper (brother of Ben Harper).

Jody Watley Performs a Solo Classic with Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra.

 

 

Here’s a snippet of one of my performances with the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra “Best Hits 80’s Meets Symphony..” singing one of my Top Ten hit singles “Everything.”

I wore a red suit and mock turtle neck from Theory as one who usually doesn’t wear the color and funked it up with street-style attitude with new red shades from a new line I stumbled across, nude Louboutin pumps and my signature jumbo hoops with added sparkle. Red in this case represents my passion for living and life..I’d had a custom tux made but it wasn’t ready in time..
