Freeyda was born in Nashville,Tn. Her image is that relaxed chill type look with a soultry vibe. She came up listening to a variety of sounds growing up as a child. Her atmospheric sounds ranged from gospel to jazz and a little country.
Thus throughout her own music career she does not shy away from experimenting with diverse sounds and styles of music to express her soul.
Freeyda began singing in her church choir where she enjoyed being a part of a harmonious sound and where she first got her shot at singing. Freeyda loved being able to sing with her mother by her side and so many other family members and friends every Sunday.
Soaking in everything she learned from the church, Freeyda decided to use her voice and her driven nature to become student director of the Black Music Ensemble at Berea College under the direction of Dr. Kathy Bullock.
