Don Cornelius, R. Kelly Documentaries Set For Centric

In celebrating Black Music Month this June, Centric will premiere the just announced documentary “Don Cornelius: Visionary, Trailblazer, & Cultural Icon.”

Set to premiere Saturday June 23, the documentary “tells the story of the iconic Soul Train creator whose voice and soulful presence redefined television. And in the legend’s own words, he will tell his own story, with the history, the music, the images, and the social change that was heralded in by the monumental series.”

In addition to Cornelius, R. Kelly will be chronicled in a new episode of “Being.”

Being: R. Kelly, a one-hour special commemorating the longevity and talent of the legendary artist, will air Saturday, June 16.

Both specials premiere at 10pm on Centric.

In related news, R. Kelly has announced the release date for his anticipated album “Write Me Back.”

The album is due June 26 via RCA.
