The Barry White Story
Portrait of the singer, producer, and songwriter renowned for his suave, mellifluous voice that inspired thoughts of romance in lovers everywhere. White was a poor boy who broke away from potential trouble and overcame racial barriers to become a huge star. We recall how he re-invented the big, orchestral sound with the Love Unlimited Orchestra, and we follow his progress as an artist with archive footage of his vintage performances. We also look at White's career decline in the 80s and his later comeback, along with some of the heartbreaking events of his life, which include being cruelly denied the love of his children as he lay dying. Features interviews with Glodean White, his wife and performing partner, Barry's fellow artists and record executives, and the sounds of such immortal Barry White hits as "My First, My Last, My Everything," and "Love's Theme."
