Freddie Jackson is an R&B vocalist who rose to fame as part of the Harlem, New York music scene of the 1980s. He earned a record contract with Capitol Records in 1985 and released his debut solo album Rock Me Tonight, later the same year to critical and commercial acclaim. In addition to earning Jackson Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Rhythm & Blues Vocal Performance, the platinum record secured him an international fan base. After his mainstream appeal began to diminish into the 1990s, he switched over to smaller Orpheus Music imprint and continued to release records of his signature contemporary soul sound, including 2010's For You.
