It was a great day to celebrate the birthday of the late R & B legendary singer Barry White and his family, friends and fans gathered to witness the unveiling of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Motown founder Barry Gordy and Walter & Scotty of the Whispers were just a few of the hundreds that attended the event on Thursday.
The “Maestro’s” wife Glodean James spoke about her late husband and his legacy.
“His music will be with us forever and a day past our lifetime”
