Happy Birthday Barry White! 67 years ago today the Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter and producer was born in Galveston, TX. White first made a name for himself as a songwriter in the 60s and 70s before reluctantly embarking on a solo career. Lucky for us he overcame his fear of performing and released his first album I Got So Much To Give in 1973.

Prior to his death in 2003 Barry White had recorded over a dozen albums and had been sampled by many artists inspired by his sound. Take a quick look at some your favorite songs by Mary J. Blige, Nas, 50 Cent and others that incorporated the music of Barry White.
