On Sunday, TV One’s Unsung tells the story of a talented group created by Greg Williams and led by the talented but tortured Bobby DeBarge, whose demons served as the catalyst for the group’s unraveling.
“Bobby had more talent in his pinky finger than the whole family put together,” El DeBarge said about his eldest brother on the episode.
Bobby and brother Tommy eventually quit the band with one album left on their contract and mentored their siblings. But because of their contractual obligations, they weren’t able to join DeBarge.
When Bobby and Tommy DeBarge left the group, they spiraled further downhill, with both serving five-year terms in prison on drug charges.
