Artist Countdown: Freddie Jackson Top 30 Hits 6pm ET @jacksonfreddy

freddie JacksonFrederick Anthony “Freddie” Jackson (born on October 2, 1956) is an American soul singer. He was an important figure in R&B during the 1980s and early 1990s.[citation needed] Among his well-known hits are “Rock Me Tonight (For Old Times Sake)“, “Jam Tonight“, “Do Me Again,” and “You Are My Lady“.

Jackson was trained as a gospel singer from an early age, singing at the White Rock Baptist Church. There he met Paul Laurence, who would later become his record producer and songwriting partner. After completing school, Jackson joined Laurence’s group LJE (Laurence-Jones Ensemble) and played the New York nightclub scene. During the early 1980s, Jackson moved to the West Coast and sang lead with the R&B band ‘Mystic Merlin’, but soon returned to New York to work with Laurence at the Hush Productions company. He sang on demo recordings of Laurence’s compositions, and also served as a backing singer for Melba Moore after she saw his nightclub act.  (Source: Wikipedia)
