Jody Watley reacted to last night’s U.S. elections on her blog at MySpace (@jodywatley). The Beverly Hills based R&B singer tells readers:
Standing in the middle of my living room floor, holding on to my 16 year old son, I wept at the news that Barack Obama had become the 44th President of the United States. I received many calls, and everyone was crying. The tears continued throughout the night. It’s an experience I will never forget. When President Elect Obama walked out with his beautiful wife Michelle and simply adorable daughters, I wept even more. I was a sobbing wreck from the sheer joy and happiness.
Watching the diversity of the crowds from Grant Park in Chicago, to places around the world, was a beautiful sight. Volunteering in the final days of the campaign, with the diverse group of people working for a common purpose was also something I won’t soon forget – we have only just begun!
