Don’t be surprised if you see Al B. Sure in Mount Vernon on Tuesday.
The R&B crooner will be back in his hometown — and he’s bringing a camera crew with him. Sure will be filming segments for TV One’s “Unsung,” a documentary series that tells the stories behind former chart-topping R&B and hip-hop artists.
The former Mount Vernon High School quarterback, who went multi-platinum in the late ’80s with hits like “Nite and Day,” has been known to put the spotlight on his Westchester hometown. His social media profiles still declare that he is “Mt. Vernon 4 Life.”
“This Is a good day for Mount Vernon,” says Mayor Ernest D. Davis, who will welcome Sure to City Hall at 11 a.m. “Not only was Al raised here, but so was his son, Al Jr., an up and coming artist. They both attended local schools and played sports for the high school.”
Sure is the second Mount Vernon-raised star to be profiled on “Unsung.” Late rapper Heavy D was the topic of an episode in 2013.
