While artists like Marvin Gaye, James Brown and Patti LaBelle have all been recognized for their huge talent and contributions to the music industry, other artists like Phyllis Hyman, Melba Moore and Donny Hathaway—all talented in their own respects—have not received equal recognition and have often faded over time. TV One’s signature music biography series “Unsung” sets out to honor these often forgotten acts.
Now in its fourth season, “Unsung” will reveal the untold back stories on the lives of Teddy Pendergrass, Tammi Terrell, the Fat Boys, the O’Jays and more. During these one-hour biographies, fans will be intrigued by the gripping tales and forgotten legacies these artists left behind.
Following its debut in 2008, “Unsung’s” premier episodes were viewed by over 1.1 million people. Additionally, the Phyllis Hyman episode went on to be the network’s highest-rated original program that same year.
New episodes of “Unsung” premier every Monday at 10 p.m. on TV One.
