Barry White

September 12, 1944, Galveston, TX ~ July 4, 2003, Los Angeles, CA

It is fitting that Barry White's 1994 comeback album was called The Icon Is Love, because to a generation of soul music fans, Barry White was an icon who represented the sensual side of love. His deep, sexy voice was mimicked but never matched by any other bass singer, and his dedication to music of love and romance achieved for him singular status among male soul singers of the latter 20th century. One of the most recognizable figures in popular music for three decades, White was both a talented songwriter and producer, but was ultimately known around the world simply as “The Voice.” ~ Soultracks: Barry White ~ retrieved September 9, 2013 © Soul Tracks

If Barry White sang a song, there was no point even trying to cover it; nobody could match the sexuality he put into a tune. ~ Not In Hall Of Fame: Barry White ~ retrieved September 9, 2013 © Not In Hall Of Fame
