NEW. Jody Watley -Sanctuary Remix and Mashup Video.

 

Watch it Now:

 

I love this fan made video by The Fantasy Clinic – the video is a mashup of the teen me on Soul Train blended with current visuals created by Ray Easmon out of the U.K. The remix keeps the essence of the song with a nice deep house edge – which you know I live for!

Jody Watley and SRL. Detroit Grand Prix

An exciting blend of grand prix racing, and various other family activities related to race car driving and a splash of music added in – that was the Detroit Grand Prix. The day started out cloudy with some rain sprinkles but by the time we hit the stage at 1 PM. the sun was shining brightly.

Here are a few photo’s. A few video snippets to come.

Jody Watley and Little Fan Heaven Backstage Detroit GP

Her nickname is Heaven, she’s 6 this was her first concert. She became an instant fan – created this art and it was given to me after the show.  The song ‘The Passion’ by SRL really made an impression, it’s the first thing on her drawing – it’s about believing in yourself and she heard me. I had them bring her backstage to meet..and gifted her a signed handheld fan and t-shirts for her and her Mom. It’s in The Music!
