Seeing this photo shared by a Etienne Go on Facebook from a club in Belgium in 1983 while on tour with Shalamar is another reminder of how long I’ve been getting to do some of the things I love and working really hard at it, and always fighting to be myself – through the many ups and challenges, obstacles overcome ..singing, performing, dancing, designing, writing and bringing joy to the people.

Here’s to the now, to the weekend.  It’s OK to take a glimpse back, evaluate, reflect, see how far you’ve come, use the lessons learned and so on – just don’t get stuck there.

Much Love!

 

 

 

Original. Fan Made. Hoops. Enduring Style.

This is another fun video with a take on the new Shalamar Reloaded single and video “O.R.I.G.in.A.L”

Ironically in the past few days, fans have shared with me these posts heralding the jumbo hoop earring, the blend of eclectic style high and low fashion.. it’s been  pointed out “they mention other artists who have followed the trend, trends you set –  except the person who started it – you”..origins people, learn it! “What you mean you don’t know about my hoops!”

Jody Watley and Shalamar Reloaded Giving Them Something To Talk About.

 

Jody Watley and Shalamar Reloaded continue to knock it out of the park pushing the needle forward. It was the second time around at Harrah’s Atlantic City with one of the most dynamic shows out touring. The audience gets favorites spanning decades and genres as diverse as disco R&B, Funk, Pop, Hip hop, Adult contemporary and Dance as well as new music.
