SILVER SPRING, MD - Feb. 3, 2017- Season 10 of TV One's longest-running and award-winning series Unsung continues with a feature on group member-turned-solo R&B artist Dave Hollister on Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. ET. Family and friends, including Tank, Teddy Riley, Chopmaster J, Money B, Tim Kelly and Al B. Sure provide insights and first-hand accounts into Hollister's highs and lows, and the trials and tribulations he faced in private and public forums.

When Blackstreet exploded onto the R&B scene in the early '90s, so did one of the group's most memorable lead vocalists, Dave Hollister. Born into a musical church family who considered R&B forbidden fruit, Hollister spent his childhood rebelling and testing boundaries. After spending years holding down major artists as a background singer, he came into the spotlight when he joined Blackstreet with Teddy Riley and stood out from the pack on the Top 5 single "Before I Let You Go." But after just one album, he left the group to pursue a solo career that included Top 10 hits "My Favorite Girl" and "One Woman Man."

Yet, while lovesick fans jammed to his soulful lyrics, Hollister was secretly living a tormented life, battling an addiction to cocaine, alcohol and women. In the 2000s, declining music sales and his personal quest to duplicate the success of Blackstreet fueled his addictions - ultimately causing him to lose his family and nearly his life. With nothing left to lose, Hollister returned to his Baptist church roots to find his voice, and once again found success - this time in gospel music. After a 10-year hiatus from secular music, Hollister is back in the studio with a new attitude and new lyrics that he believes are a perfect balance between gospel and R&B. On this candid episode of Unsung, he opens up about his road to fame, the demons that nearly overtook him along the way and what brought him back from the brink.
