The beat don't stop for this singer's timeless appeal

It all begins with you: In a cookie-cutter world, it takes raw talent to cultivate the confidence required to live by one's wits. Workin' on a groove: Gumption has made Jody Watley an unsung pop icon -- vaingloriously sexy, always with the times, never of the times and oftentimes ahead of them. Most of all: She's filled the gap between black and post-black, urban and urbane, modern and contemporary. Timeless.
