Bobby DeBarge was the lead singer of R&B group Switch, an act signed to Gordy’s Motown Records imprint Gordy Records. Known for his impressive falsetto, DeBarge quickly shot up to stardom during the late 70s. He later co-produced for his siblings’ band, also named DeBarge, before joining the group himself.
Amidst his success in music, he struggled with substance abuse and legal issues. He died in Aug. 1995 of AIDS complications at the age of 39.
The Bobby DeBarge Story is slated to premiere on TV One sometime this year.
