Barry White Recieves Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

One of soul music’s most enduring and impactful figures, 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
