b. George Franklin Jackson III, c.1978, Washington, DC, USA. A R&B skill sponsored by manufacturer/coach Chucki Thompson, Frankie documented his debut record for Thompson’s Epic Information subsidised imprint Chucklife in 1997. Designed by Thompson being a return to a vintage soul crooning design, it highlighted an all-star ensemble including Beliefs Evans (performing over the duet, ‘Believe Of You’) and strike R&B music group 112. The last mentioned group also composed materials for the established, as do fellow guest superstar Mary J. Blige (‘All I Perform’). Frankie acquired originally fulfilled Thompson at age 14 through shared acquaintance Notch Howell of Delivered Jamericans. The record was the consequence of a five-year apprenticeship, where Jackson would often ‘label along’ at Thompson’s documenting periods, and was marketed with the one, ‘If I HAD FASHIONED You’.
