El Debarge net worth: El Debarge is an American R&B vocalist who has a net worth of $1.5 million. He’s best known as the falsetto vocalist as well as the principal voice of the family group, DeBarge, who have been rather popular during the 1980s. As a solo artist, he’s best known for his hits, “Who’s Johnny,” and “Love Always,” as well in terms of his collaborations with Tone Loc, Quincy, Jones, Fourplay, and DJ Quick. He’s a three-time Grammy nominee, and has been active in the music business since 1979. He was born Eldra Patrick “El” DeBarge on June 4, 1961, in Detroit, Michigan; he was the sixth child of ten children. El’s parents had a tumultuous marriage that involved domestic abuse and child abuse on the section of El’s father, Robert. He spent his youth singing in several church choirs before being trained in private study with Ricky Callier. By 1975, Debarge had already started expressing his desire to be a performer, and by 1979 he and his brothers were on their approach to some music career. In 1981, Motown released the album, The DeBarges after the family had worked for a year to record the album. In 1983, the group released the record, In a Special Way, and by 1984, the group became a sensation while touring for Luther Vandross on the vocalist’s Busy Body tour. Rhythm of the Night became the group’s best-selling record ever, and El Debarge became the dominant voice on the record. In 1986, El Debarge left the group and started his solo career, that was equally profitable. He also worked on collaborations with other artists that became huge hits. He stated that his dependence started after he began receiving prescription drugs for toothache pain from having a tooth pulled by a dentist. Up until then, El DeBarge had not used drugs, unlike his siblings, who began to abuse drugs throughout the tenure of the group. From the mid-1990s, El had become hooked, and his dependence resulted in his career taking a tumble and also a prison sentence where he served 13 months, El declared himself born again and announced that he’d found sobriety after an addiction that he said had lasted nearly 25 years, but sadly, in February 2011, while promoting his record, Second Chance, DeBarge’s label announced the vocalist was canceling all public dates and appearances as he went back to rehab following a relapse. El Debarge has been married three times, with all his marriages ending in divorce. In 1978, at the age of 15, El DeBarge became a father to his first child, a daughter named Adris, and over the years he’s fathered twelve children completely.
