Popular online website Hello Beautiful has produced it’s first documentary in celebration of Women’s History Month. Jody Watley is one of an eclectic range of prominent women (Eve, Soledad O’Brien, Beverly Johnson, Chrissette Michelle, Anika Noni Rose, Lisa Leslie, Jurnee Smollett, and more) appearing in the documentary speaking on topics such as womanhood, sexuality and power in the 14 minute “Women On Top.”
Former recording artist, renowned songwriter writer, producer, author (Everything You Better Know About The Record Industry) and filmmaker Kashif is working on a 10 part documentary titled “The History of R&B”, it was a pleasure to sit down an chat about a variety of topics with regard to my career as a solo artist, Shalamar member, being a woman and trailblazer in the industry. It’s always fascinating to me the questions women artists are asked as compared to male artists.
As they were running behind, I crossed paths with Reggi Calloway from Midnight Starr who I hadn’t seen since I left Solar Records and Shalamar in 1983.
