Who’s Holding Donna Now – El Debarge

The next artist started out in another of Motown’s sibling groups. At Motown, we had the Isley Brothers, the Velvettes, Gladys Knight and The Pips, the Jackson 5, Switch, and Debarge.
El Debarge was the lead singer for Debarge that consisted of El, Mark and Randy, their sister Bunny and cousin Andre Abney. The band was very successful during the 1980s, but pressure was placed on the band to feature El Debarge as Motown had done with Diana Ross and Smokey Robinson. This caused discord between El Debarge and his siblings and when their fourth album “Rhythm Of The Night,” was released the rift was very apparent. “Rhythm Of The Night,” however, became the groups biggest success on the R&B and Pop charts and in several countries.
Here is El Debarge with “Who’s Holding Donna Now.
