The season finale of TV One’s music docuseries Unsung will tell the story of Detroit trio, The Jones Girls.

The R&B group climbed the charts between the 1970s and the 1980s with hit songs including “You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else” and “I Just Love the Man.” They also recorded “Who Can I Run To,” which was later covered by Xscape.

The group was made up of sisters Brenda, Shirley and Valorie Jones.

Shirley, the only surviving member of the trio, speaks candidly with Unsung about the group’s journey to success, their addiction issues and jealousy among the three sisters — problems that caused the group to unravel.

“In Brenda’s case, her’s was more of the animosity of feeling that she should have been the lead singer or led more songs. I think that’s what led to her drinking,” Shirley says. “Valorie, she loved the singing … but having to do interviews, constantly doing radio promotion, tours, I think that became overwhelming for her.”

Unsung is narrated by actor Gary Anthony Williams and is executive produced by Arthur Smith and Frank Sinton of A. Smith & Co. Productions. Mark Rowland also serves as an executive producer.
