LOS ANGELES – Jody Watley, Grammy award-winning music icon and celebrated singer-songwriter, is bringing “the wattage,” to airwaves, in celebration of Women’s History Month.
Watley will host “The Jody Watley Show,” a new monthly 2-hour show exclusively on SiriusXM’s The Groove.
The Jody Watley Show – “Wattage Vibes Rooted in the Music,” will kick off with Emmy-winning actress Sheryl Lee Ralph as the first guest, Sunday, March 12th, at 6 PM (EST) / 3 PM (EST) on The Groove channel 50 and on the SiriusXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online.
“I am so excited to be coming to SiriusXM,” said Jody Watley. “I look forward to bringing the Wattage and my own style to listeners, fully packed with the best of classic to contemporary R&B music and engaging conversations with surprise guests on The Jody Watley Show.”
Watley is a celebrated singer, songwriter, producer, businesswoman, and one of the architects of 21st century pop, affectionately referred to as “The Queen of Cool.’
Renowned as one of the defining artists of the 80s with an influence on style, music and pop culture, Jody Watley forged the template that is now everybody’s playbook.
From her groundbreaking marriage of rap & R&B (1989’s “Friends,” a collaboration with hip-hop legends Eric B. & Rakim pairing that is the first to crossover R&B/Hip-Hop, Pop and Dance into the Billboard Top 10 “Friends,” to her vision-forward marriage of high fashion, street fashion and music in the ‘80s long before it became the norm), to her fusion of jazz and underground club culture with keen pop instincts, and the ease with which she crossed and still crosses genre.
