Atlantic Starr made their mark with slow grooves like "Secret Lovers" and the wedding classic "Always." But the band had its roots as a close-knit group of nine friends and family members, hailing from a small town in upstate New York, who were devoted to fun and to funk.But the band’s sheer size, and the fight for control within it, led to conflicts which ultimately split the group in two. Members of Atlantic Starr, past and present, came together for the first time on Unsung to candidly discuss the rise and fall of a group whose bonds of friendship frayed in the crucible of making music.
