On Saturday, March 11 at 8 PM the Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center presents its 8th Anniversary concert featuring El DeBarge with Tia Rachelle. Currently in the studio working on the follow up to his Grammy nominated, Second Chance album,
El DeBarge says "he's pacing himself for longevity and taking the necessary steps to maintain it."
El DeBarge's signature falsetto anchored sixteen Top 10 hits, both with the family group, DeBarge ("Rhythm of the Night,” "All This Love," "I Like It," "Time Will Reveal") and as a solo artist ("Who's Holding Donna Now"). In 1990, El teamed up with Quincy Jones to create the unforgettable smash "The Secret Garden," which also featured Barry White, Al B. Sure!, and James Ingram. The last new music he released was 1994's acclaimed Heart, Mind, and Soul.
The anniversary concert was originally scheduled for October 8, 2016 but was rescheduled due to inclement weather. Tickets from the October 8th date are being honored. Limited seats are available. Tickets are available for purchase on the Downing-Gross website
. For more information contact the Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center at 757-247-8950.
