Williams’ rapping can be prominently heard on many of C+C’s songs from their debut album, including Billboard Hot 100 #1 “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now),” as well as other major hits “Here We Go (Let’s Rock & Roll)” and “Things That Make You Go Hmmm…” All three of those songs hit #1 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play record chart.
Williams’ solo debut, Freedom was released on June 1, 1993, on Columbia Records. The single “Voice of Freedom” peaked at #74 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #4 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in 1993, and its follow-up, “Groove Your Mind,” also charted on the Club Play chart, peaking at #33. In 2004 he enjoyed chart success again in the UK with his single “Sweat the Remixes” on RMD Entertainment. The song got national airplay and peaked at #8 on the UK Dance Charts that year. Williams contributed all the rap vocals for Eurodance act Masterboy’s digital-only Best-of-release “US Album” from 2006.
Williams has since continued to work, writing solo material and performing. In addition to music, Freedom has written and directed a short film called Freedom Williams’ Life Goes On which was released in early 2011. He also was an actor in an episode of “Red Shoe Diaries” , the movie “Bound by Debt” and the Netflix series “Fifth Borough”.
