Jody Watley was awarded the best new artist GRAMMY on March 2, 1988.
JODY WATLEY: “I broke down crying, thanking the people who believed in me — when others didn’t. It was a triumphant moment, coming out of a group and establishing my own identity. Once I’d silenced the naysayers, it gave me the confidence to be the artist I was meant to be — fearless and authentic.”
