We all remember the unforgettably deep tones of Barry White. During his 40-year career he won two Grammy awards and achieved over 100 gold albums worldwide.
His millions of fans were heartbroken when White, nicknamed the “Guru of Love”, died of a stroke aged 58 in 2003.
He fathered 8 children from his two marriages, who are all grown now. But one of his children Darryl White has launched his own music career and you won’t believe his voice. Clearly he has inherited his father’s base-baritone voice, but that’s not all.

White’s son from his first marriage hit the headlines back in 2017 claiming to be broke and practically homeless because he hadn’t received money owed to him from his father’s estate,according to TMZ.
It was reported that he was suing his father’s widow, Glodean White, after realizing he wasn’t getting the promised amount of money that his father allegedly left in his testament.
