Veronica Freeman (born December 17, 1977) in San Diego (California) is the lead vocalist of the American heavy metal band Benedictum. Her most recent album with Benedictum is Obey, released through Frontiers Records in 2013.
When she was introduced to metal she felt in love with the power and the energy of it and was encouraged to try singing by her longtime friend Craig Goldy.
Freeman and Pete Wells became close friends and she has said that there is something about his playing that inspires her to this day. They started writing together and were in a few bands together, including Medusa and the Malady. They felt that after playing quite a few local shows in San Diego that it was time to move forward and see what they could do musically on a new level and that is when they embarked on the project that is now Benedictum. With some help from Craig they were introduced to Jeff Pilson and things really started to turn around from there.
Freeman got married in 2007.
Her influences are from Ronnie James Dio, Tina Turner, Melissa Etheridge, Etta James, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughn to Freddie Mercury
