He created the Love Unlimited Orchestra,which consisted of live musicians, including string and percussion players. Records featuring White's deep bass voice and suave delivery were used by couples wishing to create a romantic ambience. Considered handsome and deeply romantic by his many females fans and admired for the unique blend of soul and classical orchestral musical elements he created, White was often affectionately referred to as the "Maestro" or "The Man with the Velvet Voice". His portly physical stature led some in the popular press to refer to him as the "Walrus of Love", a monicker not known to have been employed by fans who appreciated the great affection with which White performed for live audiences and who considered him a mainstay among soul music artists throughout his career.
