It’s always a joy to come to perform and share the love with everyone. I feel very blessed to have these opportunities. Billboard Live staff is fantastic as well which also makes everything go smoothly.

Looking forward to wrapping up a fantastic music summer at the intimate Yoshi’s Oakland featuring SRL. We’ll be previewing a couple of new songs from the groups “Bridges” project and I’ll be including the George Michael tribute I did earlier on the year with Act 1 of my solo set devoted to my solo debut. It’s always a party and it’s always great to see the fan community get together- Wattage Crew in full effect. Concerts are great to come and release some stress and get away from sone of the serious issues facing this country right now.
July 8 at 8 PM. promises to be another exciting summer concert experience! This will be more of a hits themed show with music from my vast solo catalogue Hot 100, R&B and Dance Hits as well as some choice cuts from my Shalamar days and joined by SRL.’s Nate Allen Smith and Rosero McCoy, we bring the heat and always sprinkle in something new and funky!
I’ll be on SIRIUSXM tomorrow at 12:15 EST with Sandyland/Radio Andy with Sandra Bernhard August 30, 2016. Tune in!
Later this week I’ll be on ABC Radio Networks – details to come.
The Freestyle Explosion Concert in Philadelphia at Wells Fargo Center was another fun experience..I must say how great the comradery is with the artists.Lisa Lisa is a sweetheart, the ladies from the music group Expose’, the Covergirls..the list goes on. The fans really get their party on in a night full of quick paced classic hit spotlights.

It’s a small world..bumped into my former colleague Howard Hewett..despite the peddled non drama..I’m always cordial when I see anyone from my past, like anyone else would be with former co-workers.

This will be my only East Coast performance this year – don’t miss it! Get your tickets today – don’t delay. It’s important to get advance ticketing to avoid cancellations (nervous promoters), to get the best seats and to plan ahead. Concert promoters monitor these things closely – so let’s pack this place out! Also on the bill Lillo Thomas for the ladies.
If you haven’t seen Jody Watley “Live”, you are missing a treat. This is a glimpse of the poignant improvisational “When A Man Loves A Woman” the controversial spoken word, topical single from the 1991 album “Affairs of The Heart.”
Jody Watley will make a rare concert appearance May 29, 2014 at Yoshi’s Oakland, CA. Don’t Miss It.
I will be returning to Yoshi’s Oakland May 29, 2014 and looking forward to it. There’s always joy for all of us to come to the bay area.

Come say hello, sing, celebrate the success of ‘Nightlife’, the forthcoming “Paradise”, party with us, perhaps meet your new love or just mix it up, put on something nice and get out of the house. There will also be limited edition merchandise available. Get your tickets today – Here
I haven’t had much time to update my tour journal, but I will with loads of additional photo’s and more anecdotes – I made it through as the tour concluded last night sold out in Camden’s plush Gilgamesh. This photo is from Halifax in the dressing room in my custom black sequined jumpsuit as I currently sit in the airport lounge excited and exhausted returning home. I can’t wait to share more of the wild ride that was David Gest Present Legends of Soul Tour 2014.
One of the albums on my tour playlist was Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd Jazz Samba, gnerally playing it on the long rides back to Liverpool form whatever city we were in. love jazz and bosa nova.
A great start to the week to all – BE fabulous, go for amazing -don’t just go through the motions of life on the daily grind of life!
