Biography

Raised in Los Angeles, she started her singing career in the church at the age of four, and got her first recording contract at the age of fourteen with the girl group "The Delicates". The quartet recorded several singles for the Challenge, Soultown, and Pulsar Record labels. Pool went on to become a founding member of the female trio: Wild Honey. R&B star Vesta Williams, and Mary Flowers were her groupmates. Ron Townson (of The 5th Dimension) was their mentor. In 1976, the trio had the distinction of being the first act to release a single on the legendary TK Records label. The group disbanded in the early '80s. Freddie's impressive list of musical associations include performances with Lola Falana, former Supreme Jean Terrell, Lisa Stansfield, Phyllis Hyman, Patti LaBelle, Ron Townson, and Sammy Davis, Jr.. Her television appearances include the Tonight Show, Merv Griffin, and the Arsenio Hall Show. Freddie has also recorded and performed with Liza Minnelli, Lou Rawls and Jermaine Jackson. She managed her own 12 piece band "The Motorcity Angels" and prior to joining Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurence's group, Freddie was touring extensively with the legendary Motown songstress Gladys Knight.

Former Ladies of the Supremes

In July 1996, Freddie replaced Sundray Tucker in the Former Ladies of the Supremes. In September 2009, it was reported via Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurence's website that Freddi would be no longer a part of "The Ladies", instead, Joyce Vincent Wilson, formerly of Tony Orlando and Dawn, had taken her place. No explanation was given for this change.
