Barry White would have been 61 today, September 12.
Ever since I was a kid, I was a Barry White fan. I don't know if it was the voice. The "sexy talk" in between singing lyrics. Or just the talent. He wrote, sang, and played instruments on all his music. Unlike most musical artists today.
Very fitting that his last CD was named "Staying Power." Because his voice, music, and style will never go away.
Favorite Barry tracks: "Practice What You Preach," "You're The First, The Last, My Everything," "It's Ecstacy When You Lay Down Next To Me," "Playing Your Game Babe," "Love Is The Icon," and "Staying Power."
