2021 brought many challenges with an ongoing pandemic and an entertainment business that had been put on hold for over a year. The National Museum of African American Music appointed me, as their first membership ambassador. I was featured on their outdoor digital jumbotron for several months.
Slowly live concerts returned and I was excited to have the opportunity to do a handful of concerts and other events such as the honor of performing the National Anthem twice MLB and NFL; once for the historic Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium and then Los Angeles Chargers at SoFi Stadium.
I was inspired to drop “Renderings” along with standout singles “Whenever” and “Not A Single Day Goes By” all remixed by Alex Di Ciò. UK Soul radio was on board immediately with strong support propelling the single into the Top 5. Stateside there were quite a few television appearances including the Emmy winning Tamron Hall Show, each interview was joyful and always with an inspirational takeaway for viewers.
The Jody Watley Wattage 7 : Getting through the year healthy and strong – Music – “Renderings”, Concerts Returning to Stage, National Anthem Dodgers Stadium, National Anthem – So-Fi Stadium, Television Appearances, National Museum Of African American Music Ambassador.
Wishing everyone the best of 2022! Thanks for being on this journey with me – here’s to many more memorable moments.
