Barry White: Late Singer’s Daughters Married Interracially

*Late soul singer Barry White married his background singer, Glodean White (of the group, Love Unlimited) on Independence Day in 1974 and ironically, he passed away on Independence Day in 2003 from kidney failure at age 58, ILOSM reported.

The outlet also noted that Barry has a total of 6 children- two with Glodean and 4 from a previous marriage and another relationship. He and Glodean’s two daughters- Shaherah (40) and Bridgette White (50)- who often sang with their Mother as part of the revised Love Unlimited Trio. The original 70’s trio included Glodean; her sister, Linda James; and their cousin, Diane Taylor.

Many Barry fans were surprised to find out that Shaherah and Bridgette have biracial children that are the product of their interracial relationships.

Check out below what Shaherah shared about her vanilla thunder (white man) and their anniversary.
