R&B singer Al B. Sure has teamed up with TV One for ‘Unsung,’ a new series on the popular network that will pay tribute to legendary acts including the Debarge family, The Clark Sisters and Donny Hathaway. Set for a sneak peak Thanksgiving day, TV One will allow fans to get a glimpse of the anticipated DeBarge episode. The sneak peak will be followed by a one hour installment of ‘Unsung’ on four consecutive nights beginning Nov. 30 at 10 pm ET with Phyllis Hyman, followed by the Clark Sisters on Dec.1, Donny Hathaway Dec. 2, and the DeBarge family Dec.3. “We created ‘Unsung’ as a way to celebrate core urban favorites whose body of work has stood the test of time but whose journeys may be less well-known,” Jeff Meier, TV One senior VP and “Unsung” co-executive producer, told Billboard.biz. “We wanted to answer why did these artists remain mostly unsung to the world at large?” In addition to focusing on each act’s musical path, the episodes include reflections by either the artists or their families.”
