Freddie Jackson


I grew up in Harlem—I live in Harlem right now. I was born and raised in Harlem, I went to church in Harlem, I went to high school—junior high school—in Harlem—I still reside here, and I love living in Harlem

Freddie Jackson (born October 2, 1956) is an American soul singer. He was an important figure in R&B during the 1980s and early 1990s. Among his well-known hits are “Rock Me Tonight (For Old Times Sake)”, “Jam Tonight”, “Do Me Again,” and “You Are My Lady”. Jackson’s forte was sophisticated, romantic soul ballads aimed at adult audiences, but he was also capable of tackling urban contemporary dance fare and even the occasional jazz tune.
