TV One's "Unsung" Series is back and just as potent as last year (Donny Hathaway, Phyllis Hymon, DeBarge, Clark Sisters). The detail in these specials is just incredible. This year they've done Minnie Riperton, Melba Moore, Shalimar, Florence Ballard (maybe more, i'm not sure).
Many surprising details came out about the music Sis. Minnie made and most have likely never heard, including her beginning with Chess Records all-female group called "The Gems" under the tutellage of Sis. Etta James (Chicago).
The below is dedicated in memory of her tremendous talent and features her in her second group, Rotary Connection, which most of you are already familiar with.
