TV One‘s longest-running and award-winning series Unsung moves to Sunday nights and kicks off an electrifying 11th season with a premiere featuring Wyclef Jean. It has been 20 years since the debut of Wyclef Jean‘s first solo album, The Carnival. During the season premiere of Unsung, fans will get a glimpse into the ups and downs that the gifted artist has endured and overcome during the past two decades, which inspired his new music project “The Carnival: The Rise and Fall of a Refugee,” debuting on September 15, 2017.
The Haitian born, multi-talent skyrocketed to fame with his group, The Fugees, in the late ’90s. Along with fellow Haitian Pras Michel and songstress Lauryn Hill, the trio broke records with their critically acclaimed sophomore album, “The Score,” which became a multi-platinum, Grammy-winning hit. When romance troubles between Wyclef and Lauryn forced them to disband, many thought Wyclef would fade into obscurity. Instead, he succeeded in his own career with hits like “We’re Trying to Stay Alive” and “‘Gone Till November,” while becoming a sought-after writer/ producer for acts like Destiny’s Child, Mary J. Blige, Shakira and Carlos Santana.
Premieres Sunday, July 9 at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. on TV One
