The season 10 finale of TV One’s longest-running and award-winning series, Unsung, will present its first-ever tribute show on the God-father of Soul, James Brown, on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 8 p.m. ET.

Through rare footage and interviews from former band member and celebrity guests Unsung will take viewers on a journey filled with soul, R&B, Gospel, funk, Hip-Hop and all the magic that made James Brown the greatest of all time.
