ONE EXTENDS UNSUNG MONDAY NIGHTS AT 10 THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER, ADDS THREE EPISODES  

to July 25, The Sylvers on August 1 and Mary Wells on August 15 –

July 13, 2011, Silver Spring, MD ““ In the midst of Unsung‘s highest-rated season to date, TV One has announced plans to extend the run of the NAACP Image Award-winning series Monday nights at 10 PM ET throughout the summer, including three additional premiere episodes. The popular series of one-hour biographies celebrates the lives and careers of successful artists or groups who, despite great talent, have not received the level of recognition they deserve or whose stories have never been told.   Unsung also strives to help provide the full picture of black music in America beyond the acknowledged superstars and household names like Aretha, Whitney, Stevie and Marvin.

The episodes that air Mondays at 10 PM ET will repeat at 1 AM ET and will feature:

  • July 18 – Sylvester – Sylvester James was the undisputed King and Queen of disco.   He strived for fame, fortune and freedom during a time when it was highly unlikely for a large, openly gay, sometimes in drag, male to make it in the world of entertainment.   But with a powerhouse falsetto voice to back him up, that’s exactly what Sylvester did. Through interviews with music colleagues such as Narada Michael Walden, The Pointer Sisters, Martha Wash and Jeanie Tracey, along with close and friends, Unsung chronicles a music career which reached heights that few expected, but in retrospect was fully earned.

 

  • July 25 – Billy Preston (Premiere) ““ A child prodigy who performed with Nat King Cole and recorded with Mahalia Jackson at 10 and went on a European Tour with Little Richard at 15, he was the only artist to share a songwriting credit with The Beatles and regularly toured with The Rolling Stones. And his greatest fame came on his own, with a slew of popular hits including ‘Nothin’ From Nothin’,’ ‘Will it Go Round in Circles,’  and ‘You Are So Beautiful.’ But the joy Billy shared in his music was masking a deep sadness. Burying a dark childhood secret behind drugs and alcohol, Billy deteriorated throughout the ’ and ’90s, ultimately ending up in prison. For the first time, Billy’s closest friends and family open up about the torment that drove a musical genius to ruins and a painful, early end.
