African American female(Black was the trem of choice back then)growing up in Georgia and loving Freddie Fender. Many people tell me that I am crazy, because I always talk about Freddie's music. I had a conversation with a lady a few months ago in a store about Freddies music, while school shopping. People looked at us as if we were crazy, even our daughters. We were talking and singing in the middle of the store lost in the conversation about Freddie Fender. She was AA also. So to the memory of Freddie and to his family and friends so many people were touched by the music of FREDDIE FENDER.
P.S.I still play his music today.
