Freddie Jackson is one of the biggest stars to dominate the R&B charts seemingly at will in the late '80s and early '90s. Known for his sophisticated, romantic soul ballads aimed at adult audiences, he is also capable of tackling urban contemporary dance fare and even the occasional jazz tune. Like so many soul stars, 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 producer and songwriting partner. During the early '80s, Jackson moved to the West Coast and sang lead with the R&B band Mystic Merlin, but he soon returned to New York to work with Laurence at the Hush Productions company. In 1985, Jackson landed a record deal with Capitol Records and issued his debut album Rock Me Tonight. The Laurence-penned title track stormed the R&B charts and made Jackson an instant sensation on urban contemporary radio. With recent releases like 2006's Transitions, which featured the hits "Until the End of Time" and "More than Friends", and 2010's For You, the legendary voice that produced almost a dozen No. 1 singles and several gold and platinum records continues to enchant audiences across the country.

Venue Description: A throwback to the fabled days of New York nightclubs, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill features top-caliber music stars and an American Continental menu with a Southern flair. The Showcase Room has video screens and state-of-the-art sound, table seating, a bar where you can snack and listen, and a dance floor. The Beatles Brunch is offered every Saturday at noon (doors at 11am), and doors open for the Gospel Brunch every Sunday at 12:30pm with music at 1:30pm.
