084 JODY WATLEY: "Paradise is Here"

BOLD | Inspiring interviews with provocative people| Hosted by Emmy winner LeGrande Green

Release Date: 02/05/2015

This Grammy-winning superstar knows a thing or two about life, love and balance. “I’ve always been a grounded person. Being an artist is different than being a celebrity. Having a life that you’re comfortable with when you go to sleep at night is incredibly important to me.” 

Always a fashion-forward visionary and trendsetter, Jody brings an empowering message to BOLD, offering can’t-miss advice on how to create your own sanctuary at home. “It’s not about going to Maui. It starts right where you are.”

Despite her massive success and stream of monster hits (“Looking for a New Love,” “Still a Thrill,” “Real Love,” “Friends”), Jody–like everyone else­–has had her ups and downs. “I pour a lot of myself into the music. When I left the group Shalamar for a solo career, people said I wouldn’t make it. Winning the Grammy for Best New Artist was like being rewarded by God and the universe for stepping out on faith.”

Available on iTunes, her latest album “Paradise” features retro funk and recalls the disco and soul records that inspired her iconic musical style. “It takes the soul and spirit of those classic sounds and blends them together with electronica.” Jody’s official website is www.jodywatley.net.
