Who was Freddie Combs?
Combs was an American singer, songwriter, and musician who competed in season two of the X-Factor music competition series.
Born in Jonesville, North Carolina, the fan-favorite received four yes votes for his rendition of the song Wind Beneath My Wings, which he dedicated to his wife, Kay.
At the time, Combs appeared on X-Factor weighing in at 540 pounds, performing on a wheelchair.
Judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid promised to back Combs if he promised to get healthy, lose weight and get out of his wheelchair, which Freddie vowed to do so.
Though he never won the competition, he did manage to lose more than 400lbs from 2009, when he weighed 920lbs.
