Watch on EPIX – “I know who I am…” Watley joins other trailblazing women in music sharing a snippet of their journeys and having agency over a male dominated industry. Jody Watley also talks about stepping outside of perceived boxes for black artists.
“I’ve always been selective about what I do, how much I do it and tend to not do a lot of traveling earlier in my solo career it was to be present and raise my children, in recent years caring for my Mom then even less with the pandemic. When I do choose to come out, I always make it worthwhile for my fans and not only give a great show in any format, but have them leave feeling empowered and inspired” – Jody Watley “Wattage”
