What kind of impact did they leave on the music industry?

Was it possible that they could've been bigger than the Jacksons?

soo much to ask about...

Yeah... I was watching their UnSung story.. IMO... El and James had so much going for them as soloists... same with Bobby DeBarge.. I think they could've been alot brighter.. I also think, as a group.. they're easily one of the least talked about and more underrated groups of all time!!

I saw TV One's Unsung documentary about Debarge a few weeks ago. They used to be one of my favorite groups. El Debarge is my favorite singer in the group. Their story was so sad but it's a typical story which happens to a lot of entertainers such as doing drugs. That's messed up that they got teased real bad when they were kids because they're lightskin. James said they tried so hard to fit in with the other kids at school but they couldn't because kids constantly dissed them because of their skin color. I guess the kids at school found out that their father is white because they're lightskin. Their father also physically abused them when they were kids and the father sexually abused Bunny Debarge when she was 7 years old and he didn't stop until she was 13 years old. That's so digusting. Their brother Bobby who was the lead singer of Switch group died of aids in 1995. His wife is cute. She was on the Unsung documentary talking about him and his 2 sons also talked about him. El Debarge's wife is cute. She was talking about him. My favorite Debarge album is In A Special Way. I didn't know they did a album before All This Love album. Their first album is called The Debarges and James wasn't with them when the album came out because he was still in high school and the other group members wanted him to finish his education before he became a music artist.

Debarge was dope in the Last Dragon, and Rhythm of the Night used to be my cellphone ring.
