StrongWriter On the Radio: (Episode 46) “Bunny DeBarge – I Want To Say I Knew You”
“Bunny DeBarge – I Want To Say I Knew You”
Featured Guest: Bunny DeBarge
Bunny DeBarge is best known as the lone sister in the legendary Motown R&B family group DeBarge. The eldest of the ten DeBarge children, Bunny’s unique high soprano vocal style and love of writing began at a tender young age. She was the lead vocalist behind the classic R&B ballad, “A Dream,” from the group’s In a Special Way album and is also the co-writer of the group’s 1982 breakthrough hit, “I Like It,” and the number one hit, “Time Will Reveal.” Her song “A Dream” was sampled and covered by the likes of Tupac Shakur and Blackstreet.
Bunny’s book “The Kept Ones, Vol. 1” tells the definitive story of her family and the world that made them. She pours her life into the pages, sharing the trials and tribulations of her journey with sensitivity and insight.
In the words of Bunny:
God has been faithful and so very good to me through it all. Many of you have followed me faithfully from my days touring with my brothers as “DeBarge.” Those were good times, and lots of wonderful music and memories came out of that era. Behind the scenes , there was personal pain that most knew little about. I speak very candidly about the inner turmoil that I hid behind a smile in my book ,”The Kept Ones!” I’m facing my demons one by one, and determination is taking over where fear and doubt would have stopped me in my tracks. I’m getting “high on life” now and it is such a wonderful thing.
