Exclusive Clip from TV One's 'Unsung'

All about the live, times and music of the R&B great.


TV One's series Unsung takes on the formidable task of giving under-appreciated music acts of the past their long-awaited props. The latest installment takes a look at the life, tumultuous times and music of R&B crooner Bobby Womack.

Although his hits have lived on in remakes and movies -- K-Ci Hailey and Kelly Rowland have both released versions of his songs in recent decades, while his "Across 110th Street" was featured prominently in Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown -- not many people know what has become of him.

Check out this exclusive clip of the episode, which airs Monday, Jan. 9 at 10pm ET.
