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.

Jody Watley. A Special Day and Young Man-My Son Arie

Posted on my social media pages yesterday for his birthday!

Today is a blessed day in my life – the birth of my son Arie, the best son in the world to me!

Arie is one of the lights in my life and I know I am in his Raising Arie and his sister Lauren has and continues to enrich my life. I’m so proud of the young man he has become and the man I know he will continue to be.

Jody Watley Weekend Greetings.

I posted this on my Instagram and Facebook- say hello!

Black Music Honors aired for the final time today on Bounce-such gratitude to receive those roses while I’m here to appreciate them. The Black Music Honors TV show in it’s second year has class and soul. The proceeds benefit the building of the National African American Museum of Music being built in Nashville, Tennessee.

The other great thing about this show was their going outside of the box beyond the usual artists that are repeated over and over not just Honors but performers as well. Thanks again Sevyn Streeter and Vivian Green – both have new projects out so please support those wonderful ladies and artists.

I’m going to upload my full speech – they had to edit though I didn’t get the play off music!

There’s a lot of not so positive things going on in the world – Be open to good things..don’t get stuck in a rut.

Jody Watley by Tim Davis. Originated in 1987 – posted in 2017.

Always appreciative of the love, time and good vibes. Tim shared this with me on my Facebook page from a sketch he did in 1987, the year of my solo debut. This is an upside of social media.

Jody Watley Timeless Style.

Style Signatures. Just as much as I still love a good edgy moto/biker jacket .. I still love a good tailored suit /jacket like the one I’m wearing here back in 91.

Always find your own personal style-it’s a way of saying a bit about who you are without having to speak.
