Biography

Judy Torres, often referred to as the “Queen of Freestyle,” was, and still is, one of the most acclaimed and enduring freestyle music artists of all-time. She also records R&B, Dance and Pop. Torres has outlasted many of her counterparts. Growing up in The Bronx, and attending an all-girls Catholic high school, she was the eldest of five siblings. She scored major club hits with songs like “Please Stay Tonight”, “Come Into My Arms”, “Love Story”, “I Love You, Will You Love Me” and “No Reason To Cry” a love-themed freestyle classic.

Until 2009, Torres had a Sunday-night Freestyle show on New York’s popular radio station WKTU 103.5. She is still on the radio station.

In 2001, Torres scored a major club hit with the sentimental love song “Back in Your Arms Again.” It peaked at #7 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, her highest charting single yet.[citation needed] It was also featured in an excellent remix version on the popular compilation series White Party. In 2004, she released her debut single on the wildly successful label Robbins Entertainment that was titled “The Air I Breathe,” which featured freestyle artist Collage. It is a Hi-NRG song produced by famed A-List producer Tony Moran. The single proformed modestly on the charts.

In late 2005, Judy released the single “Faithfully.” The song immediately began to receive heavy airplay at dance stations throughout the nation. It is a cover of a 1983 hit by the band Journey. The single soon peaked at #1 as one of the most-requested songs on WKTU. It peaked at #1 on the station’s Top 8 at 8:00 PM show for more than five weeks altogether. Other Rhythmic/Dance format radio stations in the U.S. soon added the popular single from New York to their playlists. The CD-single of “Faithfully” peaked at #8 on the Hot Dance Singles Sales chart. In August 2007, Torres returned to her Freestyle music roots with the single “I Don’t.” The song is a cover of Danielle Peck’s Top 30 country hit written by Clay Mills/Peck/Burton Collins. In November 2008, Judy released “Hell, No,” an anthem for abused women.
