Jody Watley 2017 Favorites

2017 was another memorable year on the journey.

Here are some of my favorite moments topped with being the recipient of 2017 Crossover Music Icon on the broadcast new awards show Black Music Honors. One of the special elements of the show is their connection with National Museum of African American Music. The sculpture “Traveling Through Time Rhapsody and Rhythm” represents 50 plus genres of African American Music spanning 400 years of American culture designed by Jamaal B. Sheats exemplifying the mission of NMAAM to celebrate, preserve and educate contributions African Americans make to American music.

Great Concerts – one of my favorite was The Greek Theatre Freestyle Festival and I really enjoy the different of generations and diversity in my squad. The little ones call themselves WatleyBabies. Music transcends all to those open to it.

Jody Watley. August Updates and Transmissions of Love

As the world continues to turn for all of the bad and good..life keeps ticking. I choose to focus of the energy of always being the change I want to see and encouraging others – love is the message.

Diligence.

I’m Nashville as honoree “Crossover Music Icon” for my contributions to soul and pop music as trendsetter and Icon – it’s really even more special to be honored on same night as The Jacksons (rest in peace King of Pop Michael Jackson)..they were such an inspiration to me growing up as I’ve said along the way of my career and life journey- my Mom could tell you that! Music is such a powerful force in life. Heals, inspires, motivates, gives hope..and so much more. I’m so thankful to continue to spread joy and to also continue to inspire others to be yourself, stay strong and do you — no matter what people have to say.

The taping is this evening and will be televised in September and October.

This!

We still have a long way to go as human beings on planet earth…

In Nashville, I came across the reminder of how those who fight for change with the system being as it is are often penalized. Hats off to fighters for civil and human rights then and now.

What the commemorative sign reads : “On February 13, 1960 124 students from Nashville’s historically black colleges and universities walked into Woolworth’s, Kress and McClellan’s and sat down at the lunch counters and asked to be served to no avail. The students also targeted Walgreens, W.T. Grant as well as Harvey’s, and Cain Sloan Department stores. Their goal was to desegregate Nashville lunch counters. The student protesters experienced no violence until February 27. On that day at Woolworth’s and McClellan’s white resisters threw the students from their seats, punched, kicked and spat upon them. Nashville police only arrested the student protesters. 81 students were arrested and charged with loitering and disorderly conduct. Two days later, the court fined each student 50.00. They took a principled stand and refused to pay the bail and spent 33 1/3 days in jail. ” let that sink in and fast forward to 2017
