About El Debarge
Patrick DeBarge, or known by his stage name "El Debarge," is a legendary R&B singer, famous for his hit songs "Who's Johnny"
and "Love Always." Spending his formative years in Detroit, El Debarge first got a taste for music when he began singing in
his church's choir and playing piano as a young child. Eventually, he studied privately with a music educator, and decided
to pursue music professionally as a career. After dropping out of high school, he started performing in local clubs with his
brothers, and they were soon offered a record deal. Playing with his relatives under the name "The DeBarges," they were signed
with Motown Records. Their self-titled debut album "The DeBarges" was met with limited success, but what stood out was El
Debarge's stunning vocals, which would later carry him through his solo career. The band went on to release more records,
and became known for their hits "Time Will Reveal" and "Love Me in a Special Way." Despite their growing success, tensions
began to develop between El and his brothers, due to their record company grooming El to be the main star of the group. El
Debarge was soon in charge of the production of their albums, with minimal input from his brothers and fellow bandmates. With
El at the helm, their album "Rhythm of the Night" became The DeBarges' best-selling record. Recognizing his talents as a star,
El had left the band and started a solo career by 1986.

produced his famous songs, "Who's Johnny" and "Love Always." Although his second album wasn't that successful, he signed with
Warner Bros. and was later featured on Quincy Jones' "The Secret Garden." His third album "In The Storm" was released in 1992,
featuring the duet with Chante Moore, "You Know What I Like." Throughout the next decade, El Debarge would continue to appear
on other musicians' records, but he never released an album of his own from 1994 to 2009. Finally, he returned to the studio
and released his album "Second Chance" in 2010. His comeback proved to be a success, with three Grammy Award nominations for
Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, Best R&B Song, and Best R&B Album.
