Jody Watley’s “Renderings” The Alex Di Ciò Remixes grooves its way into the UK Soul Chart with a #4 position on chart ending December 19, 2021. With standout soulful house uptempo cuts “Whenever” “Not A Single Day Goes By” “A Beautiful Life” receiving heavy play and currently also at #1 on the Sweet Rhythms Chart. It’s a nice way to close out 2021. The reason for music is not charts and awards – however it’s very nice to see the continued support.
Though a short set, Jody Watley made every minute count in a fiery, funky and fierce performance at the Winter White Concert Party at Texas CU Theatre. Rarely a fixture on more classic R&B bills – Watley proved more than capable as one of music’s most versatile artists with a catalog to match.
“People who have never seen or experienced me live after all of these decades are always surprised and ecstatic. I take it as a compliment rather than an insult. You can’t have this type of longevity and not be able to deliver the goods and then some.I’ve always said. I hope to continue to surprise people, change and grow.” – Jody Watley

America is focused on trap and hip-hop commercially however, there’s a big world out there and the UK radio has always embraced veteran artists who continue to release quality music along with respect for legacy artists as well.
Massive thanks as well to Alex Di Ciò for his unyielding passion and support for my music and our collaborations, to my co-writers Rodney Lee & Draks Themo (Not A Single Day Goes By), along with Shawn West for his art which really inspired me to do this project to showcase it along with the music and remixes. Music and Art -Wattage!
It all went down Saturday and Sunday night at The Texas Trust CU Theatre December 11 and 12th for 2 sold out shows with The Isley Brothers and. Frankie Beverly & Maze. I’d been looking forward to this show since it was confirmed and booked. I’ve been a huge fan of The Isley Brothers since high school – to be on the same bill was surreal. As an esteemed legacy artist myself, I’m not above some legit fan girl emotions and excitement – never too cool for school and always humble and don’t mind showing my enthusiasm when I love other artists.
Dream come true! A special thank you to Kandy Isley who made the introduction meet and greet happen. I watched both of their shows from the wings of the stage and was singing along like everyone else. They put on a stellar show, vocals, dancers – everything top notch.
Kandy and her sister Kim are also really gifted singers – the blend and harmonies on point as well as being beautiful and kind ladies.
Meeting the incomparable Frankie Beverly was also a highlight.
In my funky spontaneous vibe – “Friends” – it was lit!
For more pics and video check out my Instagram page, I shared a few live snippets of The Isley Brothers.. I was totally mainly trying to me in the moment and singing along with everyone else most of the show.
Thanks to all involved for such a fabulous weekend of classic music – in winter white sharing the gift of music is always such a blessing. These were my final concerts of 2021 – in an ongoing pandemic and challenging time – it meant even more to so many. To successfully get through all of my shows with everyone remaining healthy is also a blessing. We love bringing joy and the light to the people to forgot your woes and escape in the music.
