Jody Watley. New BTS Video on Youtube.

Last weeks performance of one of my solo Pop/R&B classic hits was one of the best of the countless times I’ve performed it over the decades. My voice still retains it’s unique resonance and tone – though time has given it more depth. In soundcheck, I usually like to break the songs down to either piano and vocals, acoustic and so on before we bring all of the instruments in. There’s something more intimate that happens when the listener is just with voice and a lone instrument. No frills, vocal gymnastics and distractions – just the lyric and delivery to really touch a person in a different way.

Here’s a snippet from soundcheck of “Everything.” Make sure to subscribe to the Official Jody Watley YouTube channel : Subscribe

Jody Watley Covers Rihanna’s Stay. Live Soundcheck Video Tokyo.

I always seek to find ways to bring elements of surprise to my concerts on every level from arrangements of songs, set lists,visuals and so forth. I love the song ‘Stay’ which was recorded by Rihanna with Mikky Ekko. For the new series of concerts ‘Stay’ felt like a nice transition piece emotionally to lead into my classic ballad of longing – ‘Everything.’
