CHERYL PEPSII RILEY
Premiere: Sunday, July 1 at 9 p.m. ET/8C
Cheryl Pepsii Riley burst on the scene in 1988 with her #1 hit single “Thanks for My Child,” a ballad that paid tribute to the love of single mothers for their children. Under the songwriting and production umbrella of the Full Force family she seemed destined to keep rising as a star. However, after a series of singles about provocative subjects, her label struggled with how to market her, and Cheryl’s career foundered. Determined to support her family by any means necessary, she took musical back roads from session work to back-up singing, while raising several children with the help of her husband and family. She eventually reinvented herself as a musical stage actress in plays by Tyler Perry and continues to stay true to her musical roots.
Episode features candid discussion on Cheryl Pepsii Riley with Tyler Perry,Shemar Moore, Full Force and more.
