Barry White Waits For Kidney Donor

Deep-voiced soul singer Barry White was resting at home while his search for a kidney donor continued, his manager said.

White, 58, had dialysis treatment in September to stabilize his condition, a complication from years of chronic high blood pressure.

"I see him every day, and he's doing better every day," manager Ned Shankman said Wednesday. "He's a candidate for transplant. We're still looking for a match."

Potential donors include White's own children, Shankman said.

White is known for romantic songs such as "Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe" and "You're the First, the Last, My Everything."

He had been working on a new studio album before undergoing treatment.

White was hospitalized in August 1999 for a blood pressure problem.
