TV One's award-winning documentary series UNSUNG will feature R&B singer and actor Christopher Williams on Sunday, March 8th.

Christopher Williams is an R&B singer and actor from the Bronx, who emerged during the late 1980s with the New Jack sound. As the nephew of the late Ella Fitzgerald, music was always a part of his DNA. The singer released his first single “Talk To Myself,” followed by “Promises,". After the success of his first album, he went on to star in the cult classic film, “New Jack City,” and had the number one single “I’m Dreamin” from the film’s soundtrack. Events in his personal life, however, would soon jeopardize his rising success. With an alleged rape charge and an arrest for child support, Christopher Williams found himself in a dark place.

The season continues with memorable stories of influential artists including funk and disco band Skyy; the "Mother of Freestyle" Shannon; Grammy Award-winning crooner behind the 1972 number one single "Me and Mrs. Jones," Billy Paul; vocal powerhouse Betty Wright, best known for the 70s hit single "Clean Up Woman;" multi-Grammy Award-winning musician Al Jarreau; and Atlanta hip hop quartet Goodie Mob.

UNSUNG, winner of the 51st Annual NAACP Image Award for Outstanding News/Information- (Series or Special), celebrates the lives of trailblazing musicians whose full stories and journeys have yet to be explored. Through first-hand accounts, interviews with family and friends, and archival footage, each episode weaves a tale of the highs and lows of a life in the limelight.
