Who is Carole Fredericks?
Here are highlights from Carole Fredericks'
amazing music career in France.
On Wednesday, June 27, 2012, a large group of people gathered behind Nortre Dame de Clignancourt on rue du Mont Cenis to celebrate the life and musical legacy of American singer, CAROLE DENISE FREDERICKS. Ms Fredericks passed away suddenly and was buried in Montmartre Cemetery in Paris in June of 2001. The local dignitaries, colleagues, fans and family members who gathered in place Amyé Lavy celebrated her music career of 22 years and philanthropic work in France. The highlight of the ceremony was the unveiling of a commemorative plaque in her honor on the façade of the apartment building at 91 bis rue du Mont Cenis where the late singer lived for 10 years. With this gesture Carole Fredericks joined entertainer Josephine Baker and author Richard Wright to become the third African American to receive a commemorative plaque from the city of Paris.
Connie Fredericks-Malone, James Malone, Taj Mahal and the entire Fredericks –Williams family wish to thank the residents of 91 bis rue du Mont Cenis, the mayor and staff of the 18th arrondissement, Home Abroad Services, Ramier Law Office and all the individuals who helped make this prestigious recognition possible.

June 5, 1952 to June 7, 2001
A phenomenal voice... a legendary musical presence... overflowing generosity... strength and simplicity. For 22 years Paris, France was her home. Although French was not her native tongue, Carole mastered the language and became a renowned recording artist in the French-speaking world. Know as "Black Mama" to millions of music fans around the world, Carole's vocal style gave birth to the soulful rhythm and blues sounds prevalent in contemporary French rock music.
On June 7, 2001 while on tour in Senegal, West Africa, Carole Fredericks succumbed to a heart attack. She was 49 years old. Her death left an unmistakable void in the music world and in the hearts of fans and friends. At the request of the French Ministry of Culture, Carole was laid to rest with other luminaries in historic Cimetière de Montmartre in Paris.
