Paul Anthony has uplifted people with his music and his stage persona as a member of the ground-breaking, award-winning R&B group Full Force. But when he was diagnosed with cancer in a number of different forms, he reached for the One who has always been his number one inspiration. Leaning on his faith and Father God, he tackled each challenge with the same perseverance he used to consistently hit the top of the charts.
Paul Anthony’s powerful story was told in TV One’s “Unsung” about Full Force. The show became the most watched episode of “Unsung” on the network. TV One gives fans an up close and personal look and an update of Paul’s Cancer Champion Journey when “Unsung Revisited” debuts on Wednesday, July 1st at 8 p.m. ET. During the premiere airing, fans of Paul Anthony can provide feedback and connect with the artist directly on Facebook or on Twitter (@Paul_AnthonyFF).
“The first ‘Unsung’ focused on the vast work we’ve done as Full Force, and my personal health journey with Mantle Cell Lymphoma, an incurable blood cancer,” Paul recounts. “‘Unsung Revisited’ continues my ‘Life Dance’ with two other life-threatening diseases, Myelodyplastic Syndrome and Acute Myeloid Leukemia, as well as my life-saving bone marrow transplant from my brother and Bone Marrow Donor Champion Bowlegged Lou. In this episode you’ll hear, see and feel the journey from views of both my brothers Lou and B, my wife Michelle, and Dr. Hamlin and Dr. Sauter of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center as well as the wonderful transplant team.
Members of Full Force says, “We’re so thankful to Ms. Cathy Hughes, the TV One family and the ‘Unsung’ production team, A. Smith & Co., for presenting this wonderful continuation. Ms. Hughes, the CEO and Founder of TV One and Radio One, as well as the TV One family has been a Full Force supporter for years”. Ms. Hughes says, “Full Force has always shown love through music and Paul Anthony is truly a visionary.”
Anthony’s recent song, “I Feel Good, I Look Good, I’m God Good” featured the incomparable talents of R&B artists Faith Evans and Sheila E.; Full Force also released the song’s star-studded music video with cameos from some of today’s top stars in the world of entertainment including Will Smith, Quincy Jones, Donnie McClurkin, Anthony Anderson, Common and a slew of others.
This summer, Full Force will be releasing another “Godspirational” song featuring Shanice Wilson and Raphael Saadiq called “God’s Love, He Takes Me High”.
