Tommy DeBarge from R&B Band “Switch” – Homegoing Services Today!

Written by on November 4, 2021

1073VIP.COM would like to send our condolences to the Debarge Family!
Tommy Debarge, a member of the R&B/funk band ‘Switch’ rose to fame in the mid to late ’70s — the group recorded hits like “There’ll Never Be,” “I Call Your Name” and “Love Over & Over Again.”
Tommy and his brother, Bobby, were founding members of the group, which had a huge influence on future bands in the genre, including DeBarge … the group composed of their siblings.
Bobby and Tommy left Switch to mentor their younger brothers and sister in DeBarge, but Bobby died of AIDS-related complications in 1995.
Tommy’s daughter, Marina DeBarge, told the associated press, he also battled COVID-19 earlier this year, in addition to kidney and liver disease, but never complained about the pain and recovered from the virus. She says she even spoke to him last wednesday, a day before his death, and he fought until the end.
For those of you who would like to join the DeBarge Family in Celebrating, Tommy DeBarge’s Life.
You can join their facebook group page: TOMMY’S PAGE (that’s right, it’s called TOMMY’S PAGE) and it’s public.
That’s today (Thursday, November 4th at 11am PST.)
It’s a Celebration of Life and Homegoing Services for one of R&B Music’s greatest voices.

Tommy DeBarge was 64.

RIP
