Barry White is finally set to be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today Variety reports. Today is also Barry White's birthday. He would have been 69 today. If the honor feels a bit overdue for a man who died a decade ago and experienced his greatest success at an age when R&B’s current leading men were still in diapers, it’s all on par for a career that was often a few steps ahead of the culture at large.
Sidebar: My mom used to wear our Barry White's "Practice What You Preach" and my nephew mimicked her singing it over and over it. Imagine a two year old singing Barry White. Funny. Lol
