Beyond Fame With El DeBarge

Contributing Editor Anji Corley gets deep with El DeBarge as he promotes his appropriately titled album, Second Chance.


Talk about a Second Chance! El DeBarge is back with his first album in 16 years, and he's on a natural high that took him 22 years to find after overcoming drug addiction and prison. Now this talented songwriter-hitmaker's happiness overflows in an intimate and real conversation with The Root's Contributing Editor Anji Corley.

Go "Beyond Fame" with the singer as he talks about his first loves -- God and music; whether or not a reality show is in his future; and looking for love.
