Internationally acclaimed, Grammy-nominated singer, Freddie McGregor, O.D., has not only made significant contributions to Reggae music since inception, but, has also helped to shape it with his conscious lyrics and Philly-Soul style for over 50 years. Equally adept as a romantic crooner or as an emissary of strong cultural messaging, his undeniable vocal ability boasts hits like Push Come to Shove, Africa Here I Come, I Was Born A Winner, Guantanamera, his signature Big Ship, Lock Dem’ Down and Bangarang (both chart topping hits from album “Comin’ in Tough”) and American soul classics like, Just Don’t Want to Be Lonely (by Main Ingredient) and Can I Change My Mind (by Tyrone Davis). Today Freddie celebrates the success of his recent album “True to My Roots” which debuted at #10 on the Billboard Reggae Music Charts. He has recently received two prestigious honors: Jamaica’s 2017 Musgrave Award and Mount Vernon’s ‘Key to the City’ (June 2017).
