Foundation singer Norma Fraser resurfaces!

Foundation Jamaican singer Norma Fraser has not been very active on the music seen in the longest time. In fact we can bet some you reading this post don’t even have a clue who we are writing about!

Admit it!

Well she rose to popularity in the 60s. Back in the day she recalled sneaking out of the house to follow her passion – music.

She would take a change of clothes with her as she rides her bike to check out which American Artiste was playing in town, hoping to get the break she was seeking.

Fraser did her first recording in with Clement “Sir Coxsone” Dodd, Three years later she did a duet with Lord Creator called “We Will Be Lovers” which topped the charts for more than a year.

“I was the big cheese, you know? And in Jamaica, they played it over and over and over; it was a hit over and over and over,” Fraser says.

By the time she was a teenager, Fraser had already garnered two nicknames: Darling of the North Coast and Golden Voice.

“I met Sam Cooke and his wife Barbara, and he turned to her and said, ‘Why don’t you bring her to America with us? We like her,’” Norma Fraser reminisced.

Fraser who has been living in Eugene, Oregon for a decade will perform at the Democratic Party of Lane County holiday party 9 pm tonight, Friday, December18, at Old Nick’s Pub, 211 Washington Street.
