TV One's 'Unsung' Kicks Off New Season With Issac Hayes Among Others

TV One’s music series, “Unsung,” is set to follow up its award-winning success with the premiere of their sixth season on January 23.

As expected, the network has culled various veteran artists including Isaac Hayes, Midnight Star, EPMD, Lou Rawls, Eddie Kendricks, The Whispers, Mint Condition, and Johnny Gill to highlight the business and personal struggles that kept each artist from achieving commercial success.

Though some may disagree with a few of the aforementioned names commercial acclaim, one R&B diva who viewers will never see on the series is Stephanie Mills. In speaking with the Huffington Post last year, Mills explained why she’s reluctant to be featured on the hour long series.

"I don't like that show. They have approached me quite a few times, but I [won't] do that show…I don't feel unsung. I feel like I've had a wonderful career. I've done wonderful things and met so many wonderful different people. So I don't feel like I'm unsung at all."

Check out the season’s schedule below;

1/23 - Isaac Hayes
1/30 - Midnight Star
2/6 - EPMD
2/13 - Lou Rawls
2/20 - Disco Tribute (2 hour special)
