Biography[edit]

Fredly was born on 30 September 1975 to Hengky and Linda Latuihamallo. He was the first of five children.[1][2] Fredly is of Moluccan descent.[3]

In 1995 he won the Cipta Pesona Bintang singing contest.[1] That same year, he joined the rock band Funk Section.[2] The following year, he was a finalist in the Asia Song Festival.[1] In 1998, Fredly left Funk Section to be a solo R&B singer, feeling that it suited his vocal style better. He released his first album, GLENN, that year. It was relatively well received, selling 50 thousand copies; R&B was generally not popular in Indonesia at the time.[2]

In 2000, Fredly released his second solo album, Kembali (Return), with the single "Kasih Putih" ("White Love") receiving much airplay.[2] In 2001, he placed third in the Russian Asia Dauzy International Song Festival.[1]

He married singer Dewi Sandra in Uluwatu, Bali on 3 April 2006. Glenn filed for divorce in 2009.[4]

In March 2009, Fredly was one of the main performers in a tribute concert to deceased Indonesian singer Chrisye during the Java Jazz Festival.[5] That same year, he performed tribute concerts to Michael Jackson in five cities throughout Indonesia, covering Jackson's hit songs.[1]

In 2011 he joined with Tompi and Sandhy Sondoro to perform a set of concerts under the name Trio Lestari (The Eternal Trio).[6]

Fredly celebrated his 17th anniversary in the music business with a sold-out concert of 7500 people in Istora Senayan, on 2 September 2012.

In 2014 he entered film producing with the film Cahaya Dari Timur: Beta Maluku, which received the best movie award from FFI (Festival Film Indonesia).

Influences[edit]

Fredly has credited Michael Jackson as being one of his influences, saying that Jackson inspired him "through his music, his style, his dancing, everything"; Fredly also credits Jackson's humanitarian work for his own charitable work.[1] He also admires Marvin Gaye and Quincy Jones,[2] and is a fan of Chrisye.[5]
