MILLS' HEARTENING TRIBUTE

The photo showed the celebrant and his well-wishers in all black attires, with big satisfying smiles as they posed for the camera. Mills, in a two-piece Puma track outfit, rocked blonde braids swept up in a bun as she goofily sat on Jackson's lap. She captioned:

"Hanging with friends. #AngelaWinsbush My son #Farad and the birthday boy #FreddieJackson. Happy birthday my friend and brother…"

JACKSON'S ICONIC SOUNDS

Spanning a career of over four decades, Jackson ruled the music scene with funk, soul, and R&B, among many other 80's music stars. In recent times, the veteran singer decided to reawaken some R&B sounds in his 12th studio album.

Mills posted a photo of the trio during the games where Beyonce looked unsettled.

This, he did in 2014, in the body of work titled, "Finer With Time." The Grammy nominee saw the need to honor some legendary ballad stars like Whitney Houston, Aaliyah, and Luther Vandross. Jackson described them as "R&B angels" he felt obliged to honor.

UPDATES ON THE SINGER

These days, the 64-year-old vocalist is looking into broadcasting but making it a more personalized affair. His podcast, "Conversations with Freddie," centers on giving people unfiltered details behind the music and fame.

In one of his remarks on the show, Jackson made it known that fans are mostly all about the celebrity part of an individual without getting to know the person's personality. Jackson stated that he planned on sharing the story behind his sounds.

She confirmed this when she clapped back at Nicole Curran. Mills felt Curran was overreaching during an NBA game when she leaned over Beyonce to speak to Jay Z.

In an Instagram share, Mills posted a photo of the trio during the games where Beyonce looked unsettled while Curran seemingly had a conversation with Jay Z.

Mills, who launched the "Dorothy" character in "The Wiz," is a Grammy-winning singer who is mostly about motherhood these days and tending to her special needs son.
