(Atlanta, GA) Climax Entertainment, Enchanted Branding & Public Relations, KISS 104.1 and on-air personality Sasha the Diva partnered for an intimate fan experience with legendary R&B icon Freddie Jackson on Friday, April 20, 2018. The event was a celebration for the release of Jackson’s new single “Without You”. Sasha hosted a LIVE interview with Jackson that touched on everything from his favorite memories with peers to his hit single “Nice and Slow” being sampled for one of today’s hottest hip hop records.

Jackson also addressed the recent rumors of his weight loss and explained that after being overweight during his early years he wanted to make a life change for his health. Jackson joked around with the audience and danced with Sasha to his new single along with a few lucky ladies from the audience.

Jackson encouraged the audience to live their lives to the fullest and to make sure they always give love a chance. He played several album cuts from his upcoming release “Love Signals”, acknowledging that love is missing from much of today’s music. “I wanted to do what I love doing, but I wanted to do it my way. I’m not broken there is no reason to fix me. I wanted to make the kind of music that Freddie Jackson loves creating for his fans and that’s what I did with this album. We’re sending out love signals across the world, because love is what is needed to heal people.” Jackson explained.

Guests were treated to Cajun pasta and hors d’oerves from Simone’s catering and enjoyed a cake from Black Diamond Edible Creations. DJ Omezy provided the soundtrack for the event which was held at Paint Sip Socialize, located at 1259 Glenwood Ave SE, Atlanta, GA. For more information on Freddie Jackson‘s upcoming album follow him on social media at: @Freddie_jackson_official.
