New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) - El DeBarge earned multiple standing ovations last night for his 3 performances at the Soul Train Awards. This appearance kicks off a November tour as he prepares to release his long-awaited new album, 'Second Chance' (Nov. 30 / Geffen Records). From his astounding performance at the BET Awards this summer, to an Ebony cover story that has outsold all other issues this year, and rave coverage in the New York Times and USA Today among others, El DeBarge is building a historic comeback.
El and Faith Evans kicked off the "purple carpet" with a performance of "Lay With You." On the main stage El's tribute of Sweet Love to Anita Baker brought tears to her eyes. In her delight back stage she said "What are you doing here? You're supposed to be on the road. I just can't believe you are here to sing to me."

Many celebs like Jesse Jackson, Ne-Yo, Ron Isley, Ray J, TLC's Chili, dropped in to Hug, take a photo, or briefly chat with the iconic El DeBarge. Host Terence Howard popped in for an impromptu dressing room jam session.

El ended the night in a dazzling performance of At Your Best in tribute to Ron Isley.
