Jeffree Charles

 

Jeffree Charles was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and raised from the age of 10 in the city of Cleveland, Ohio.  Jeffree knew that he wanted to become a singer when he began singing in groups at the age of 13. His mother owned the neighborhood Mom and Pop Record Shop. He learned from hanging out in her shop that he wanted to record music, perform on stage, as well as become a radio personality.

In the late 1980s, Jeffree was a household name as a radio personality with his “Quiet Storm” formatted show called "For Lovers Only" on WZAK 93.1 in Cleveland, Ohio. Becoming a popular local radio air personality opened doors to becoming a recording artist. After his first local hit release titled “Tonight at Nine,” Jeffree Charles was dubbed the singing DJ.

Concert promoters began to approach Jeffree to  open for  major artists such as Karyn White, The Barkays, Freddie Jackson,  War, Anita Baker, Brian McKnight, Will Downing, and most recently, The Whispers…just to name a few.

Jeffree returned to his native home of Atlanta, Georgia, in 1994 to host the radio program "Slow Jams" on WALR, Kiss 104.1. He became a very popular radio celebrity in that market as well.  Jeffree hit the ground running in Atlanta Georgia, with a U.K.-released CD called “Come and Get This Lovin” in 1996.  Jeffree Charles co-wrote and produced 11 of 13 of the songs on that project. He is still getting airplay and recognition to date in the U.K.

In 2003, Jeffree Charles hosted possibly his most prevalent radio interview of his air personality career with the legendary Luther Vandross.  It was what Luther told him when the mike was turned off that remained indelible in his mind. After allowing Jeffree to sing a few songs, Luther simply told him, “Never give up and continue pursuing your dream with every ounce of determination that you possess.”

THAT IS THE GOAL FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.”
