A passion for living – a passion for life.

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lit the flame within us..keeping the passion burning bright.”

Jody Watley and Shalamar Reloaded. Another Concert To Remember in New York City.

Nate, Rosero and I made our second appearance at New York’s B.B. Kings. Our very first performance as a group was at the venue February of 2015. Our show continues to evolve and get better and so it was a joy to perform to another sold-out enthusiastic audience. One of the security guards whose been there for 15 years said seeing our standing ovation at the end of the performance was something he hadn’t seen in a longtime there. We bring it from start to finish. Shalamar Reloaded – and then it’s a Jody Watley party!

Truth.

Celebrating David Bowie.

davidbowie

Snuck into a private taping of David Bowie when I was a teen on Soul Train. His song ‘Fame’ was out on Young Americans album which I loved. He was so immediately intriguing – and I was gutted when I got kicked out of the taping (my name was not on the list) missing an opportunity to see him in person. Like millions who were fans I am saddened and shocked to hear of his passing – he was so private; something else I admire about him and didn’t know he’d been battling cancer in this age of over media saturation. Original, boldly different and eclectic, Bowie never confined himself to any musical or style box throughout his legendary career up through his just released ‘Black Star’ he kept us guessing and enamored in and out of the mainstream always a chameleon –  I admire him so much and anyone who just does their own thing staying true to themselves especially in this business. 

Quietly, or not so..he was also a white artist who spoke out against the lack of videos being played at the time by MTV (in the days when it was Music Television) by black artists unless between certain hours when people were less likely to be tuning in. I learned this fact today. Check his interview with Mark Goodman challenging the tepid excuses: here , in that way I owe a debt of gratitude a  black artist who found her way into medium to heavy rotation at one time.

Another great one – a legend who leaves an indelible legacy of music, style, performances, innovation and individuality and beyond. Live life – it’s precious..we’re all just passing through.

My condolences and prayers to his wife of 24 years Iman, his children, family and friends who knew him best.

One of my early favorites:

Good-Bye Mr. Lawrence. ( Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto from the film in which David Bowie starred).
