Jody Watley Makes Major Move w/Peabo Bryson, “Solid Gold’s” Marilyn McCoo & They’re All Ageless!
Remember when real R&B music dominated the airwaves back in the day? Those were the days when beautiful memories were created through song, singers sang slow jams that helped us set the mood when we were courting our lovers. That’s also when twerking was nonexistent and slow dragging was the respectable way to get close to that female, or male, you were diggin’ at the house parties and clubs.
Back then, Jody Watley was “Looking For A New Love,” Peabo Bryson wanted to “Feel The Fire” and Marilyn McCoo was hosting Solid Gold, and along with her husband/5th Dimension group member, Billy Davis Jr., they had us vibin’ to “Stone Cold Picnic” on a laid-back summer day.
Needless to say, the days of classic R&B memories, like those, are long gone. However, when we fast forward to today, Jody Watley has just reminded us of what those days were like.
In a series of online posts, the talented and still sexy “Real Love” singer shared some background photos and video of ‘The Colors Of Christmas Tour 2017′ she’s currently on with the above mentioned stars, as well as the youngin’ of the crew, Ruben Studdard (39).
The thing that fans couldn’t help but notice, is how age-less the old school legends are looking these days. Jody is 58, Peabo is 66, Marilyn is 74 and her husband of 48 years, Billy Davis Jr., is 79. They ALL look great and fly as they ever were! Check out the pics below and reminisce with us on this one…

Peabo’s voice is just as smooth as ever…
Smooth with it ✨ Up there with Luther – Peabo Bryson is probably my favorite classic soul singer – his voice is untouched by time beyond in a good way – he can still hit every note just like I remember in high school! Peabo is also a great person, full of charm, wit and intellect -it is awesome to work with him again (we did this tour together 15 years ago!) and to hear him even in soundcheck is beautiful. Don't miss The Colors of Christmas Tour! #jodywatley #peabobryson #rubenstuddard #marilynmcooandbillydavis #holiday #christmas #soul #pop #gospel #music
Watley & Studdard singing their hearts out…
