The R&B singer reflects on his past and discloses what he would do differently, if given the chance

El DeBarge: Embracing his second chance

After nearly 20 years away from the spotlight, El DeBarge reemerged on the scene this year with the appropriately titled album, Second Chance. Many remember the pretty boy image of Debarge as lead singer of the beloved 80’s family group of the same name, or for his rise to fame as a solo artist. But you can’t ignore his two-decade-old battle with drug addiction, which spiraled out of control and lead the R&B singer to do a 13-month bid in prison from 2008-2009. Now, DeBarge is all about embracing his second chance.

Watch as Blackenterprise.com reporter LaToya M. Smith talks with the Detroit-native about what he wishes he knew then, and what he certainly knows now. You may be surprised…

    Thank you Black Enterprise, I absolute love El DeBarge and will forever be a loving fan. I had the great pleasure of meeting El at BWI Airport when boarding a Delta flight to Atlanta, GA on 12/18/10. El was also scheduled to take the same flight and when we landed in Atlanta, he took the time out of his schedule to take a picture with me at baggage claims. I truly enjoyed the articles and videos shared by Black Enterprise entitled “5 Things El DeBarge Wishes He Knew Then” and “El DeBarge Shares Hard Lessons from the Music Industry“. El, like most humans made some bad decisions in life and has made changes to better his lifeand health and entire into his second chance. And I’m grateful that he has granted his fans a chance to experience his great journey. Thank you El. God bless you El and congratulations of your new album and second chance at the great life you deserve and are sure to have.
