Legendary crooner Howard Hewett is performing at the Magic City Classic in Birmingham, Alabama. He talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about the infamous rift between he and Jody Watley and their hit group Shalamar.
Who owns the name Shalamar?
“Right now the whole thing is in dispute. Jody went to go apply for the name, but she did it illegally. Dick Griffey passed it on to Carolyn.”
Could they still work together today?
“We don’t have to like each other to make money. The only thing I have to do is, I have to trust you. That would be a great thing. To sit down and to talk face to face. You can’t be mad all these years. It’s been over 30 years.”
