Isaac Hayes will kick off TV One’s, “Unsung,” during the premiere of their sixth season on January 23. TV One’s signature music biography series lets us in the lives of some of the most influential, talented and, even some of the forgotten R&B, soul, hip hop, funk and gospel artists of the last 30 years. This season opens with Isaac Hayes’, whose music set the scene for romantic seduction on and off the stage. American songwriter, musician, singer, actor, and voice actor, Hayes, was a musical genius, who rose from poverty to become one of the driving forces in southern soul music. Now, those closest to him, including some of his family members, life-long friends and musical associates, tell the Unsung story of an American icon.
