Congratulations to Soul Sensation El DeBarge whose first new song, "Second Chance," was nominated for two Grammy Awards last night: Best Male R & B Vocal Performance and Best R & B Song. "Second Chance" is the title track from El's first album in 16 years, released this week on Geffen Records. These nominations cap a triumphant comeback year for the singer, whose new album has already earned rave reviews from USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and Entertainment Weekly, which dubbed it "The year's most elegant tell-all."
'Second Chance' tells El's story of redemption, which followed a period of personal turmoil for the immensely talented singer and songwriter. "I want the world to know that everybody deserves a second chance," says DeBarge. Co-executive produced by Ron Fair and Pete Farmer, 'Second Chance' features collaborations with Faith Evans ("Lay With You"), 50 Cent ("Format"), and Fabolous ("5 Seconds").
It also unites El DeBarge with some of music's most notable hitmakers, including co-writing and co-production by Babyface, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Mike City, Michael Angelo, Mischke, and the Avila Brothers.
