There was a family who began singing in 1979 and they continued to sing until 1989. Most of their songs consisted of those songs in the categories R&B, soul, Funk and pop. They were part of the Gordy label and Striped horse label. The DeBarge parents we're from a musical background and therefore it is not unusual that their kids would follow suit. The members of the DeBarge family singing group included Bunny, Mark, William, Eldra, and James.
They made lots of money because of their singing. Two family members who were part of the DeBarge family singing group actually left the group and join another group called Switch. However in 1981 Bobby and Tommy left switch and they came back to the DeBarge family singing group.
