“It was a Merry Christmas at SoFi Stadium. Having the opportunity to perform the National Anthem for the Super Bowl Champions LA Rams is definitely a top highlight of 2022 and in my career. ” – Jody Watley
It was an honor and pleasure to perform again with these gifted and kind people-my friends Oleta Adams, Peabo Bryson and the silky soulful Ruben Studdard.
“The Colors Of Christmas” Davies Symphony Hall San Francisco Symphony Orchestra & Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, Colors of Christmas band, and fantastic director conductor Gail Deadrick. We performed holiday classics as duets, trio, and quartet and some of our own hits bringing the spirit of love and joy to all in attendance in the return to San Francisco Symphony after several years.
It was a magnificent, joyful and blessed experience (December 6-7, 2022). More photos and video to come!
We start our holiday music journey with Ms. Jody Watley and her stunning rendition of Christmas Time Is Here. The trip-hop and jazz take is sexy, dreamy, and cozy. It’s giving us all the feels and will be on our holiday playlist for years and years to come. It really begs for one to make a Christmas wish for an entire holiday album from the incredible Jody Watley.
Check this out, add it to your list, purchase it, and stream it. You will be glad you have and we know you will play it a few times over after the first listen. It’s that good! Bravo, Jody, Bravo!
Often the simplest things in life bring the most joy – sunflowers always make me smile and so keeping them in the house is always a boost on days when my mood may be a bit blue.
Often rather than lamenting on what we may be missing or lacking or what we are wanting -instead try shifting focus to what we do have. Doing so is a reminder to be mindful of living with gratitude. Every day may not be good – but there is good in every day as long as we are alive. We see daily how fragile and unpredictable life can be, so now more than ever be mindful to not take things for granted, to let your loved ones know they are appreciated – it’s a simple gesture with powerful meaning.
This is a gentle reminder because though the holidays can be full of joy – it’s also a time of sadness for a variety of reasons to many.
Be kind to yourself and others as often as you can, remembering it’s the simple things in life that bring the greatest joy. The world needs more kindness and love – it all begins from within and filters out.
Thank you all for subscribing to my blog and keeping up to date with me year-round. I appreciate you – you are all like a sunflower to me.
