Even though its relatively young compared to the success of VH1’s Behind The Music, TV One’s Unsung program delves into the careers of artists who were once considered either the best at their craft or on the verge and then things spiraled out of control and proper recognition was never given. Last night, the series premiered the story of The Sylvers, a family singing group from Memphis who had a few successful hits including a #1 with “Boogie Down” in the 70s but their biggest hip-hop contribution? “Misdemeanor”, which Dr. Dre flipped into “It’s Funky Enough” for The D.O.C.

    I am from Opelousas, Louisiana. My grandmother’s name is Maylory Gallien. I am not sure what her Maiden name is. Mrs. Shirley Sylers looks just like her. I was wondering what other surnames she has.

    I have family from Opelousas as well…when I saw Shirley on TV One, I thought she was one of my cousins from there. I did not catch her maiden name when I saw Unsung this morning, does anyone know? I dont have a DVR!
