Check out a sneak peek of tonight’s UNSUNG featuring R&B music sensation—Glenn Jones.
Jones lit up the airwaves in the late ’80s and early ’90s with love ballads that made women swoon. A professional singer from the age of five, he toured the gospel circuit with his own group the Modulations. Jones was mentored by the legendary James Cleveland, who helped him land his first recording deal. Collaborations with Norman Connors and Dionne Warwick put him in the spotlight and he eventually went on to record classic hits such as “We’ve Only Just Begun,” “I’ve Been Searching” and “Here I Go Again.” Although his music was played in regular rotation, Jones never became a household name. As the music industry evolved, he faded from the scene. Jones battled financial woes, romantic infidelities and a health crisis that ultimately imperiled his life. Despite the challenges, his voice remains timeless and he has proven to be a soul survivor who’s still in his musical prime. Along with interviews from celebrities Bone Crusher, Meli’sa Morgan and David Hollister, Glenn Jones reveals his highs and lows on this episode of UNSUNG.
