Our Values & Staff

G. WINSTON FREEMAN (Singer/Songwriter/Piano)

After college, I spent the next several years performing R&B, Pop and Jazz with my own 7 piece musical ensemble, nationally and internationally. Over the last 15 years, I have worked as a back-up vocalist for Gloria Gaynor during one of her New York performances ( 2001). I’ve also shared the stage as a featured vocalist, with the Emotions during that same time period. More recently, I was one of three featured vocalists in a group that was the opening act for the Stylistics (2015).

I am presently working with young children, providing instructional outlets for music and physical education, throughout the school year and during the Summer.

Additionally, I have written, co-written and recorded several songs that share an R&B/Pop flavor – the most recent one, takes a more spiritual approach in recognizing some of the challenges that we face in today’s world.

I continue to perform and am presently looking for avenues to expose these compositions through live performances and product distribution.

I look forward to the possibilities.
