Unsung, TV One’s acclaimed, original series of one-hour biographies celebrating the lives and careers of successful artists or groups who, despite great talent, over the years have been under-recognized or under-appreciated, returns with all-new episodes beginning Monday, September 13 at 10 PM ET. Aretha, Whitney, Diana, Michael and Stevie have been such musical superstars that they have been recognized and embraced across ethnic cultures and international borders. But the full picture of black music in America is much larger than those acknowledged superstars, and many of the greatest have failed to achieve that same level of superstardom. Nine of black music’s most talented artists and groups will be recognized this fall in all-new episodes of Unsung, one of TV One’s top-rated and most highly anticipated series. The episodes will air weekly on Mondays at 10 PM, repeating at 1 AM (all times ET) and will chronicle the careers of:
Teddy Pendergrass (Premiere episode, Sept. 13) – In March of 1982, Teddy Pendergrass was arguably the most popular black recording artist in the world, and the first artist of any color to achieve five consecutive multi-platinum albums. He’d shot to stardom as the singer for Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, putting his stamp on Gamble & Huff classics like “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” then elevating to even greater success on his own, to become an icon of romantic balladry, and a role model for seductive male singers that remains a defining image to this day. But a tragic car accident left Teddy paralyzed from the neck down, robbing him of the sexual appeal that had made his “ladies only” concerts so popular, and forever changing the character of his music, and his life. On this exclusive episode of Unsung Teddy’s friends, his wife and children, his musical peers and closest associates, and will tell how that accident changed Teddy from a vain, sexually charged seducer to a generous and thoughtful romantic.
