UNSUNG: SHIRLEY CAESAR – Sunday, April 12 at 6 P.M./5C

With over 40 albums and 11 Grammy Awards, Shirley Caesar is the reigning Queen of Gospel Music. Despite her success, Caesar always knew her life was meant for more than music, and in the late 80s she’d taken on a second career as a pastor, preaching around the world and starting her own church in Raleigh, North Carolina.

 

With a career now spanning over seven decades, Shirley Caesar has become a living legend of gospel music. Throughout the episode, she shares the triumphs and challenges of a life dedicated to spreading the Good News.

 

 

 

UNSUNG: MARVIN SAPP – Sunday, April 12 at 7 P.M./6c

With one of the most unique voices in gospel music, Marvin Sapp mixed old-school sensibilities and new school swagger, leading him to dominate the gospel charts in the 2000s with seven Top 10 hits including “The Best in Me” and his platinum-selling, chart-topping hit “Never Would’ve Made It.” But Sapp’s faith would be tested on several occasions – from illness, to personal attacks, to the tragic death of his wife MaLinda to colon cancer.

 

In this episode of UNSUNG, one of the biggest names in gospel music shares his testimony. Friends like Kirk Franklin and others share their firsthand accounts of Marvin Sapp’s life as well.

 

 

 

UNSUNG: TASHA COBBS-LEONARD – Sunday, April 12 at 8 P.M./7c

Gospel phenom Tasha Cobbs-Leonard‘s hybrid sound of R&B and hip-hop infused gospel brought her crossover success. Her talent and creativity allowed her to reach beyond traditional contemporary Christian audiences, earning her the nickname “The Worship Bridge.”

 

Despite breathing new life into the genre, her collaborations with secular artists and her inclusive ministry earned her criticism and backlash from within her religious community. Her message of deliverance and hope – inspired by her own struggles with depression – continues to uplift millions.

 

 

 

UNSUNG: The CLARK SISTERS – Sunday, April 12 9 P.M./8c

In the 2008 series premiere episode of UNSUNG, viewers learned the untold story of the legendary group, The Clark Sisters. These second-generation gospel stars broke down gospel/secular barriers for artists such as The Winans and Kirk Franklin.

 

However, their own personal demons, struggles within the family and backlash from the most traditional in the church community, kept them from becoming the crossover gospel household names they were destined to become.
