Exclusive Clip: TV One’s ‘Unsung’ Celebrates Kenny Lattimore [WATCH]


*TV One’s award-winning documentary series “Unsung” airs the untold story of Grammy-nominated singer Kenny Lattimore on Sunday night.

“Kenny Lattimore came straight out of Washington, D.C. in the mid ’90s with a smooth R&B sound and look to match. Raised on gospel and the soulful music of popular icons Marvin Gaye and Donny Hathaway, Lattimore made his mark in 1997 with the breakout single “For You.” The song would eventually become an enduring wedding classic,” according to the press release. “When he married R&B Diva Chanté Moore and recorded two highly regarded duet albums, his romantic life appeared to mirror his love songs. An unfortunate split from his record label coupled with his dramatic breakup with Moore, however, led to public speculations about his private life that overshadowed his career. In this revealing episode of UNSUNG, Lattimore, along with friends and family, set the record straight.”
