Vocalist
    (October 2, 1956- )
    Born in New York City, New York
    Recorded 'Rock Me Tonight (For Old Time's Sake),' 'You Are My Lady,' 'Tasty Love,' 'Have You Ever Loved Somebody,' 'Jam Tonight,' 'Nice 'N' Slow,' 'Hey Lover,' 'Love Me Down,' 'Do Me Again' and 'I Could Use a Little Love (Right Now)'
    Won an American Music Award in 1988 for Favorite Soul/Rhythm & Blues Single ('Nice 'N' Slow')
    The R&B band he sang with (before going solo) was called Mystic Merlin.
    He was NOT the musical Jackson that took the 80's by storm.
    He was nominated for three Grammys without winning.
    He tried, but failed ,to garner crossover hits from the soul chart to Top 40 like his contemporary Luther Vandross.
    By the time he switched record labels in 1993, the romantic crooner style of singing he enjoyed earlier had fallen out of favor and he faded into obscurity.
    He cut his teeth by growing as a gospel singer, then switching to an R&B flavor.
    Singing back-up for Melba Moore, he was noticed by a Capitol Records big shot who signed him to a contract in 1985.
    His first single, 'Rock Me Tonight (For Old Time's Sake),' went to #18 on the Top 40 and was a huge smash on the R&B chart, reaching #1 and staying there for six weeks.
    He earned two platinum and two gold albums.
    On the R&B Singles chart he had 17 Top 10 singles, including an incredible nine number ones.
    OutKast pays tribute to him in their song 'So Fresh and So Clean' by singing the line 'cooler than Freddie Jackson sippin' milkshake in a snowstorm.'
