The Bobby DeBarge Story TV One

The Bobby DeBarge Story, the film is being produced by TV One and will be released in June. The story revolves around Bobby DeBarge, a singer in the 1970s R&B act Switch and later the family band DeBarge. Both acts were signed to Gordy, with Switch falling under Motown and DeBarge being in a deal with Gordy Records.

I take it he had a tumultuous life and a sordid death otherwise why bother making a biopic.

Surprised they are doing this one. Except die hard R&B/Soul music listeners of 1978,1979 and 1980 most have no idea who he is. Up until Unsungs Switch episode my son said he always thought El Debarge sung " There'll Never Be" and I Call Your Name.

This is unnecessary.We already had the Switch Unsung episode and previously,the DeBarge Unsung which covered a lot of Bobby’s story.We know his story and the tragic ending.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

This is a biopic not a documentary. I mean we basically know the ending to all biopics.
