It's a shame that fashion, dance and soul Diva Jody Watley has never gotten her props for influencing many of today's artists. As kids in the 70s, we watched Jody dance her butt off with Jeffrey Daniel on the Iconic "Soul Train" music TV series. Later, when Jody and Jeffrey joined Shalamar (with Howard Hewett) we grooved to their hit music in the clubs. When Jody went solo the hits continued. She scored 6 Top Ten Hot 100 singles on Billboard, 3 #1 R&B hits and 15 Top 40 R&B hits.

A lot of kids today don't realize that Jody Watley influenced Janet Jackson's moves. Or that Jeffrey Daniel taught Michael Jackson how to do the moonwalk (which Black and Hispanic kids called the 'backslide' in the 70s).

No one today can touch Jody Watley in terms of style and originality. Beyonce's ponytail? She stole it from Jody Watley. We LOVE Jody Watley and we are happy that she reads Sandrarose.com! Read Jody's email to us after the break!

Hi Sandra,

I just wanted to thank you for the kind words and educating your readers about my history and for the post from 'The Beauty Social' event. I really appreciate the support - I'm not exactly burning up the blogs in exposure, lol.

Check out this 'Evolution In Style" Video spanning decades - from Soul Train, Shalamar and of course my solo career up through my last release in 2006 which produced 3 Top Ten Dance Singles bringing my total 10 13 #1's and a Top Electronic Album. Because a lot of what I did commercially preceded today's digital accessibility and acceptance of crossover Pop, artists doing fashion layouts, etc.. there are a lot of things I did that were so ahead of the times and comfort of what black or white artists were doing. I'm sure young people and even some adults aren't aware of my impact and influence of today's young commercial female artists.

Thanks again. This email is sent with good vibes and appreciation.

Lots of Love,
Jody Watley

    well, you already know my story and blank staring the hell out of the "music produer" who didn't know who jody watley or Shalamar was.

    "Affection..don't matter if you're young or old, dont matter if you're str8 or gay...everybody, needs to be loved.

    Jody's bad w/ or wo/shalamar, as is Howard Hewett (sanging wise). I know Jeffery Daniels danced and helped with choreography.

    She won her grammy for best new artist. I missed their UNSUNG ep, but I caught her webisodes clearing up and explaning the episode...way more interesting.

    :whistle:

    Deep in the heart
    Love has many ways
    Of touching your emotions
    Taking control of you
    And even in thought
    Love can make you change
    There's no way of controlling love
    When it's part of you

    Well you could be a married man
    With two kids and a good woman
    And you could give your heart and soul
    I swear it don't mean nothin'
    'Cause love can pull you deep into a spell
    It will spin your mind around like a carousel

    I'm telling you love
    Boy makes things happen
    You never know where it's coming from
    You never know who you're gonna love
    I'm telling you love makes things happen
    You never know what you're gonna do
    When ever true love takes hold of you

    You should do artist like these once a month. To remind us of when music was timeless!! Music that make you feel good inside!!

  • chocolate divalicious aka CD

    At some point all artists have taken from a previous artist whether it being artistically or maybe that person motivated them to even get in the game to begin with. The only difference is some pay homage and others dont.

    Emotions Make You Cry Sometimes, Emotions Make You Sad Sometimes, Emotions Make You Glad Sometimes, But Most Of All They Make You Fall In Love.

    The First Time I Felt Emotions, Is When I Came Out My Mothers Womb, I Cried, And At The Age Of Five The First Time I Found My Pride, And When I Turned Ten I Began To Like A Friend, All Things Deal With Emotions From You Until The End, Oh

    At The Age Of Eleven I Learned About Things Like God And Heaven, And When I Turned Thirteen The First Time I Had A Freaky Dream, And Now That Im Nineteen, I Know That I'm Ready I Know That I'm So In Love... Soooo

    Got a little bad news today
    They say my life ain't worth living
    And time is slowly ticking away
    Don't think that i'm going crazy
    Cause thoughts keep runnin through my head
    I know I gotta be strong, gotta hold on
    Sometimes I rather give up instead
    Seems like i'm better off dead:whistle:

    What exactly did he do? To make you cry this time?
    Well, I will be your comforter. I will make it right
    He cast a shadow on your heart. And I will bring back your light
    Come in...

    I see he's hurt you again,
    When you're in pain I'm in pain
    That's part of bein' a friend.
    But this is a special case.
    I held my feelings back because of him
    And now I can see more than ever

    pebbles had a lot of hits, as did karyn white. "love saw it" w/babyface. they killed that song. vanessa williams "the right stuff" was hot. is it wrong that I still know the routine of the video step by step? what about all of janet's videos? am I advanced in the arts a little or a lot?

    Grew up listening to Jody. Have all her shiznit. She has always been the bomb. She has always been hot, but its a stretch to say she influenced Janet. Janet's moves look nothing like hers. And how is Jody the originator of the ponytail? If thats the case, Jody stole it from Josephine Baker. Just say she was fly, but most of today's young artist have never heard of her.

    Some people just aren't in "the know." Janet stole her moves from her famous brother, Michael. Everybody during that time period was heavily influenced the performances of MJ. He was sshit to be compared to back then. Janet did a good job.

    Jody Watley is so gorgeous! My favorite solo songs of hers are: "Don't You Want Me," "Friends," and "Everything." Yes, her sense of style was so 80's. I'm glad that she is still doing her thing. I wonder what her sister, Midori is doing? :thinking:
