El DeBarge Doesn’t Want To Spend ‘Christmas Without You’


With El DeBarge's unexpected return to the music scene in 2010, I already feel like I've gotten the best Christmas present I could ask for this year. His new album, Second Chance, is finally in stores this week, and El is proving to be the gift that keeps on giving with a deluxe edition of the record that includes a bonus disc. On this surprise extra disc are three Christmas songs that are such a genius move to bundle with this release falling during this time of year. Included are DeBarge's pleasant rendering of the holiday standard "Silent Night" and two original compositions, "Heart Full of Love" and "Christmas Without You." The latter finds El lamenting that Christmas won't be the same because his love is gone. The sentiment may be sad, but the music is actually very upbeat and how can you not be happy simply listening to this man sing? This bonus disc has only made me want to hear an entire album of Christmas songs from El DeBarge. I'll put that on my wish list for Christmas 2011.

  1. I think anyone who knows what has happened with El DeBarge will instantly understand the power of God. El DeBarge was cracked out, for real. This is not a diss towards El, he has said it himself. But after buying and listening to this record, I believe that it is indeed possible for people who have that strong desire to turn his/her life around to do so. Barring the 2 tracks with 50 Cent and Fabolous, this album showcases El DeBarge in a way that is true to him and his legacy without having to succumb to that bullshit that's on the radio today. Welcome back, El DeBarge. The industry needed you, and you delivered. Thank you.

  2. Second Chance album is absolutely superb. Not only did El make a comeback but he came back SLAMMIN'! A must buy for any serious music lover!

  3. I agree it was a great Idea t include Christmas songs. It was like unwrapping a great only to find a cool little second present inside.
    This album may be the best total album of his life. The collaborators he worked with seemed to truly understand him and nothing is out of place.
    Congrats to brother EL and all lovers of Soul Music everywhere.
