Freddye Stover aka Miss Freddye began her musical journey 25 years ago, when the Pittsburgh songstress first stepped onto the stages in and around her Western Pennsylvania hometown. Since then, the “Lady of the Blues” has seen her star on a continuous upward rise. Her career highlights have included international chart-topping singles, multiple industry award nominations and recognition in her own beloved town.
With the 2020 release of her first gospel single, “Wade In the Water,” Miss Freddye returned to her church-singing roots. Her recording of the century-old spiritual reached #2 on the international iTunes Gospel sales charts, while hitting the European indie radio charts, too. Now, Freddye is about to release the second single from her forthcoming gospel album.
“Something To Believe In,” recorded in Pittsburgh with renowned producer and fellow ‘burgher, Bryan Cole, will be released on Saturday, April 24th, the anniversary of her mother’s passing.
Miss Freddye says, “The song is a gift to my siblings, nieces and nephews, who all still miss her terribly. I pray for them. I want to them to know God has her watching over them. Love for our family will always prevail, in loving arms and loving spirit.”
“Something To Believe In” was written by Frank Wildhorn. It will be released on Pittsburgh-based MTS Records.
