ATLANTA, GEORGIA – UNITED STATES– Jody Watley was showered with affection and admiration in Atlanta for “Jody Watley Day,” at the Georgia State Capitol, Thursday June 2nd.

She was publicly recognized for her time, effort, and dedication to humanity in the form of the prestigious Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award at the ceremony. 

“Today was incredible,” says the Grammy winning trendsetting icon in music, video, fashion and style. “To be honored and recognized in this way with your own day and the presidential lifetime achievement award is absolutely surreal, and I’m truly grateful to everyone who has supported me throughout my journey.” 

Jody Watley’s self-titled massive blockbuster solo debut album celebrates its 35th anniversary this year. 

The iconic singer, songwriter, producer, and businesswoman is one of the architects of 21st century pop who continues to be a solid and stellar fixture in entertainment. Her enchantingly smooth voice and memorable favorites can be heard all over the world.

From her groundbreaking marriage of rap & R&B (1989’s “Friends,” a collaboration with hip-hop legends Eric B. & Rakim pairing that is the first to crossover R&B/Hip-Hop, Pop and Dance into the Billboard Top 10 “Friends,” to her vision-forward marriage of high fashion, street fashion and music in the ‘80s (long before it became the norm), to her fusion of jazz and underground club culture with keen pop instincts, and the ease with which she crossed and still crosses genre, Ms. Watley forged the template that is now everybody’s playbook.

As a solo artist, the pop and R&B singer has 6 Billboard Hot 100 Top Ten Singles, 13 Number 1 Dance Singles, 2 R&B Number 1’s, 15 Top 40 Singles, Gold and Platinum albums, 2007 Billboard Dance Lifetime Achievement, 2017 recipient of the Black Music Honors Crossover Music Icon Award and nominations from the American Music Awards, MTV Awards, NAACP Awards and Soul Train Awards. In 2018, Billboard Magazine included Jody Watley in the Top 60 Hot 100 Female Artists of All Time and Top 25 Top Female Dance Artists of All Time. Her timeless series of hit songs such as “Looking For a New Love,” “Real Love,” “Still A Thrill,” “Some Kind of Love,” “Everything,” and “Friends ft. Eric B & Rakim,” are favorite classics still today played on the airwaves. Ms. Watley was also named as First Ambassador in 2021 to the National Museum of African American Music in Nashville and in 2022, she received her first Honorary Doctorate in business.

Jody Watley Wattage Thoughts – Never Underestimate The Power Of A Smile

I took this selfie before going onstage for Jammin’ De Mayo Saturday. I’d hurt my knee somehow, had a severe limp getting around and felt bummed that I would not be able to be as mobile as usual in my performance.

No matter what I was going to go on that stage and give my all and the smile was and is the light switch. I took this and said “Let’s Get It Girl!” As long as I can sing – the show will still go on, even if I have to be seated and give you all upper body poses, shoulders and face – the smile – the joy – the wattage is in effect.

Smiling at the crowd and catching their smiles back at me is always magic. They never know what an artist might be going through offstage or on it. I believe in energy and the reciprocation of it returns.

Ii thought of this quote this morning and thought I’d share it as a reminder in case you may be having a rough day or someone else might be —

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” — by Leo F. Buscaglia

Photos from Act 1 of the concert – more wardrobe changes followed from a high energy and visually cutting edge (of the time) show! Within a month or so, I was able to bring this concert to another sold-out experience at Universal Amphitheater – some of that footage is captured in my “Everything” video. It was a who’s who of celebrities, artists, and a diverse audience white, latino, asian, black and beyond in the house that night.
