Before Michael Jackson split from his band of brothers, and for a while after, the music world (and the world at large) was constantly asking 'Who would be the next Jackson 5?' The answer at one time would have definitely been DeBarge. But right when they were right there as a family, something... a lot of things, actually... went terribly wrong. The large family from Grand Rapids (Michigan, USA) had it all in the 1980s - the looks, the sound, the fans, growing fame worldwide. But then things took a sadly familiar downturn that comes with having it all (way past enough). Industry and social pressures, addictions and more... caused them to lose the most important thing - each other. After that - the split - came bigger and harder losses.
A powerful Unsung on DeBarge (full episode above).
