Freddie Jackson

Freddie Jackson’s debut album Rock Me Tonight stormed the R&B charts in 1985 and achieved platinum staus, spending six weeks at number one, and making Jackson an instant sensation on urban contemporary radio. “You Are My Lady” gave him a second straight R&B chart-topper, and also proved to be his highest-charting pop single, peaking at number 13. “He'll Never Love You (Like I Do)” and “Love is Just a Touch Away” also hit the R&B Top 10.

Jackson wasted no time issuing a follow-up set. Just Like the First Time was released in 1986 on the heels of a number one R&B duet with Melba Moore, “A Little Bit More” (from her album A Lot of Love). Another platinum-seller, Just Like the First Time continued Jackson's incredible dominance of the R&B singles charts: “Tasty Love,” “Have You Ever Loved Somebody,” and “Jam Tonight” all hit number one, while “I Don't Want to Lose Your Love” peaked at number two.

His legions of fans are rejoicing once again with his new CD Transitions. His single “Until the End of Time was charted as the topped-added new single during its first week of airplay, showing the same muscle as his other chart-topping ballads.

Jackson recently returned from sold-out concerts in Johannesburg, Kingston, and London, and continues to play to standing-room-only crowds throughout the US. In addition to performing, he is the author of a cookbook titled Tasty Love and continues to lend his voice to support numerous charitable organizations.
