My husband Arthur likes the show “Unsung.” It airs on the TVOne Network and is a documentary-type show that reviews the history of once famous entertainers who have not received their due based on their contribution to the music industry. Arthur’s favorites include Phyllis Hyman, Patrice Rushen, and Angela Winbush. (Yes, my husband’s favorite music category is smooth jazz. I like 90’s rap. We make it work.) I try to be mindful of and show appreciation for the work other people do and the support I receive as in my various roles - Duke Energy lawyer, president of the MCB, parent, wife, etc., etc., but I know I fall short sometimes. I imagine I’m not alone. So, what is one to do? I’m going to start by thanking some folks who may feel as though their efforts are “unsung,” and finish by encouraging you to do the same.
