Can Roshon Fegan Hit Those Bobby DeBarge High Notes?



TV One is bringing Bobby DeBarge’s life to the small screen and Disney star Roshon Fegan has been tapped to helm the role — but, the biggest question on everyone’s mind is if he can nail the famous falsetto like Bobby did…

The Bobby DeBarge Story “explores the tumultuous life of the former lead singer of 70’s R&B/Funk Band Switch, also the eldest sibling of the world-famous pop group DeBarge. Despite his success in music, the iconic falsetto found his life in peril as he struggled with fame and fortune while coping with the memories of his dysfunctional childhood,” this according to TV One.

In addition to Fegan, the film stars Tyra Ferrell (Boyz InThe Hood, White Men Can’t Jump) as Etterlene DeBarge, and Adrian Marcel as James DeBarge. Big Boi (Outkast) portrays legendary music mogul Berry Gordy, while Lloyd appears as Switch member Gregory Williams.

So, the cast is stellar, the story is sensational, but will the acting knock it out of the park? HH caught with RoShon at the NAACP Image Awards where he revealed how much singing he’ll actually be doing in the coveted role.

The Bobby DeBarge Story will air on Saturday, June 29 at 8 P.M. ET/7C, followed by an encore presentation at 10 P.M. ET/9C.
