“Unsung” is kicking off its fifth season with a profile of Teddy Pendergrass.
When Teddy passed away earlier this year, it dealt the whole world a crushing blow. But those who loved Teddy and his music know that he left the world a changed man.
When he broke onto the scene, he was a sexy playboy who was notorious for his “ladies only” concerts. That all changed when he was paralyzed after a tragic car accident.
On the season premiere of “Unsung,” airing September 13 at 10 p.m. on TV One, his wife Joan along with other loved ones and colleagues will share their memories of Teddy and give their thoughts on how his accident changed him for the better.
Also watch out of future episodes of “Unsung” featuring Tammi Terrell (September 20), George Clinton (October 4), The Fat Boys (October 18) and The O’Jays (November 8 ).
