Al B Sure, El Debarge, Luther Ingram & Barry White Perform "Secret Garden" Live at Soul Train Awards (1991)

I ran across this vintage video on YouTube of the R&B singers Al B. Sure!, Luther Ingram, El Debarge, and Barry White singing their classic hit "Secret Garden" at the 1991 Soul Train Awards. This song was a smash hit off of Quincy Jones 1989 album release, Back on the Block, and is the epitome of sensual seduction. The album earned Jones seven Grammys including Album of the Year. Check their performance out after the break!

I miss days like this when artists actually dressed up, performed, and sang without doing all that extra stuff. There's just something sexy about men when they dress up in suits--especially all black. They didn't even have to take off their shirts or anything in order to have the women throwing panties at em which makes this performance so good. Al B.? Luther? El? and Barry? Chile...

I also love how natural they look while singing. Barry White was singing and laughing like he was having the time of his life. RIP Barry White & Luther Vandross. They are truly missed.
