Welcome Back El DeBarge!

As usual the quality of the BET Awards held last night in Los Angeles was in the eye of the beholder. There were some very good performances and bewildering ones all in the span of over 3 hours. I won't comment on the Michael Jackson tribute since everyone thinks that Chris Brown did M.J. proud. I was glad to see El DeBarge resurface in a national television performance with a medley of his hits.

El had had a well chronicled drug and legal issues, but Rick Ross stated on the after party that he was ready to record with falsetto voiced singer. I'm not sure how relevant DeBarge's music can be in today's music climate, but the old music still sounds so so good.
