Regina Belle breaks down on TV One's "Unsung" after finding out about her diagnosis with a brain tumor.


TV One's breakout series "Unsung" takes music fans behind-the-scenes to get real and up-to-date stories about their favorite performers. On the latest episode, R&B star Regina Belle takes the stage to open up about her life.


Belle was previously a student at Rutgers University when she was linked with the "Manhattans" and debuted her hit song "Where Did We Go Wrong". After being signed to Columbia Records in 1987, she then released her debut album "All by Myself" which included two hit songs "So Many Tears" and "Show Me The Way".

Regina quickly rose to fame as her music stayed on the charts for quite a while. One particular song, "A Whole New World", was turned into a classic after it debuted on Disney's animated film "Aladdin".


Despite enjoying a great success, Belle was unexpectedly dropped from her record label which turned out to be just the start of a series of challenges that would arise. After 25 years in the business, she almost lost everything when she was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

“I went to emergency surgery, and the surgery was supposed to take a couple of hours. It took eight. I bled so badly they had to close me up and finish it six months later, they had to open my head back up."

Thankfully, the talented singer survived the surgery, and is set to share her truly inspiring story of faith, family, and music, on the next episode of "Unsung".
