"never been two Brothers like Bobby Debarge and El Debarge"
straight up El Debarge is One of the top 10-15 most important Black Musical figures Ever. those songs and his singing/sanging speak for itself and that Brother covers a wide range of music period.
but to have a Brother as gifted and skilled like Bobby Debarge give you the magic much how Michael Jordan held that ball in space jam and gave the ballers there powers back on the court, well that is the situation here.
now El has the pop melody thing down pat, however everything else Bobby had, and a scary high falsetto which was unique.
even as Badd as Michael Jackson and Jermaine Jackson are there was only one Michael,but Bobby and El are both bad equally it is scary and never talked about.

Bobby was the blueprint for El. With Switch, Bobby was in a league all by himself as a singer. Dude's voice was just amazing. Then when El came along with the rest of the family and his voice, man! It was like, huh, how's that even possible?! And then add to the fact that El's song writing was brilliant. And his work as a producer was just amazing. But the songs and his writing is just what is so unbelievable because everything fits so well. Then the melodies along with the arrangements are just astonishing. And El is overlooked as a piano player. That dude can throw down on the piano.
