He was probably best known for his distinctive bass voice and romantic image, releasing hit songs like "Cant Get Enough of Your Love, Babe" and "You're the First, the Last, My Everything." Born in Galveston, Texas, Barry White, who's birth name was Barry Eugene Carter, grew up in very rough neighborhood in South Central Los Angeles. In his teens, he turned to gang life, and was eventually jailed for theft. After leaving prison, he turned his life around and shifted his focus to music. He began performing with a group called The Upfronts in the 60s, while also writing songs for other artists. Throughout the 70s, he wrote and produced multiple hit tracks for Bobby Fuller, The Banana Splits, and his most successful group, Love Unlimited. His solo performance career began somewhat accidentally, and started when he recorded a few songs himself so that another artist could consider using them on an upcoming album. He was persuaded, after much arguing, to release his own album, and a successful solo career began. He would go on to record 20 studio albums, 9 of which achieved Gold status, two achieved Silver status, and three achieved Platinum or Multi-Platinum status. He also won two Grammy Awards and recorded seven #1 hits. He passed away in 2003.
