    TV One's most anticipated series Unsung is back for its fifth season with all-new one-hour biographies celebrating the lives and careers of successful artists or groups who, despite great talent, popularity and acclaim, have never had their complete stories revealed to the general public.

    Unsung strives to provide the full picture of black music in America by going beyond the success of acknowledged superstars—Aretha, Whitney, Diana, Stevie, Marvin, and the Winans—to reveal the untold stories of many of R&B and soul music's greatest pioneers who have remained "unsung" in one way or another.

    This season kicks off with the untold story of Vesta Williams, one of the biggest voices in R&B history. You can preview a clip from this episode here.

    Bobby Womack
    Atlantic Starr
    Freddie Jackson
    Full Force
