Jody Watley Weekend Greetings.

I posted this on my Instagram and Facebook- say hello!

Black Music Honors aired for the final time today on Bounce-such gratitude to receive those roses while I’m here to appreciate them. The Black Music Honors TV show in it’s second year has class and soul. The proceeds benefit the building of the National African American Museum of Music being built in Nashville, Tennessee.

The other great thing about this show was their going outside of the box beyond the usual artists that are repeated over and over not just Honors but performers as well. Thanks again Sevyn Streeter and Vivian Green – both have new projects out so please support those wonderful ladies and artists.

I’m going to upload my full speech – they had to edit though I didn’t get the play off music!

There’s a lot of not so positive things going on in the world – Be open to good things..don’t get stuck in a rut.

Thought of The Day.

Something I came across- I think it’s true.

Here’s to kindness, understanding and love.

Jody Watley. Miami Special Olympics Gala

Special Olympics is the world’s largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, providing year-round training and competitions to 5.7 million athletes and Unified Sports partners in 172 countries.

I was honored to be a part of a charity gala benefitting Special Olympics with over 6000 athletes in Miami alone, and honoring their achievements.

Arrived.

 

After a good diner and nights sleep, morning coffee and jog.

Then..

Selfie .. trying out my Fenty Pro Filter foundation (great line) angles, natural light and the dream filter.

Soundcheck- received a beautiful flower arrangement-as you know I love flowers and candles.

Later..

Camera Ready. Keeping it classy-

The custom graffiti biker jacket adds a touch of edge to the classic black dress.

Such a beautiful event and it was nice to get everyone up and dancing to cap off the evening and awards ceremony. Congratulations to all of the Special Olympians who were honored and in general to all the children and young adults going for their dreams no matter what and to the parents, family and friends who support them.

Thought of The Day. Hold On To Yourself.

Society gets people so messed up in many ways, especially now with the flip side of the positives that can come from social media and the media in general.

Not that I’m a shamen in any way – but sometimes it’s good to know we can all in some way potentially inspire another human being in a positive way. Don’t compare yourself to anyone- love yourself. Many will doubt you – just don’t let the doubter be “you” and don’t try to live someone else’s life.

This is what I shared on my platforms today.

“Be who you are- but know that it will change as you grow through life, don’t be afraid of that – your essence should always remain though no matter the changes of styles, age, and era.I always see “me” – always see “you” –No matter what your profession there will always be forces to try to move you away from you – hold on to yourself.” – Jody Watley – Wattage ⚡️
