Wishing everyone the best of the week. Here are some updates in case you missed them, I’m doing a limited round of live concerts having returned to the stage at the end of June and the beginning of July at Charles Krug Winery and Blue Note Hawaii respectively. Being in a bubble the past year and a half takes a bit of adjustment for me to jump in full steam, so as always I continue to be selective with my travel and concert experiences. It’s important we do what’s best for our own well being at all times, or as often as possible. I trust that everyone continues to be safe and responsible even if vaccinated as I am.
August 7 – Chicago Northhalsted Market Days Festival 2 PM.
September 10 – 104.3 Mega Jam 20th Anniversary – Phoenix Suns Arena
November 7 – Phoenix Pride
Musically, my collaboration with British DJ Producer Brian Power is out and available at all digital outlets and streaming platforms.
I’m excited to have signed a new deal with OZY multi-media to begin development of The Jody Watley Biopic! Read about it here: Deadline Hollywood
As the first Ambassador for Nashville’s National Museum of African American Music, recently voted 1 of the Top 10 Museums in the USA I encourage everyone to become a member (there are many virtual members experiences and discounts) and of course if you can get there in person it’s a spectacular and educational experience for music of all ages and genres. To be one of the featured images on the digital billboard is a honor. Looking forward to working with the museum to curate ‘The Jody Watley Experience’ exhibition for the fall as well.
My online store continues to add limited quantities of specialty products including my signature line of luxury soy candles – Discover Jody Watley Shop.

“The stylish “musical assassin” talks tunes, George Michael and activism…
Singer Jody Watley has been many things during her illustrious career, including an activist, fashion plate—but, most certainly, a musician. Among her many achievements in that latter area are a Grammy win; a Lifetime Achievement Award from Billboard magazine; and numerous hits (on her own and as well as with group Shalamar), including “Looking for a New Love,” “Real Love” and “Still a Thrill.”
During a recent, wide-ranging talk with Windy City Times, Watley—who most recently came out with the dance hit “The Healing” last year—discussed everything (and everyone) from her new ambassador role to George Michael to the TV show Soul Train (which she once danced on, as a regular) to HIV/AIDS activism—but the conversation started with COVID vaccinations.”..
