Showtime is telling the story of Teddy Pendergrass in a new documentary. If You Don’t Know Me follows the rise and fall of the iconic singer, famously known for his sultry lyrics and signature good looks. Herald as the first black singer to record five consecutive platinum albums, the trajectory of his budding career was quickly altered when tragedy struck in 1982. A car accident left him paralyzed. He was only 31. He died in January 2010 of respiratory failure at age 59.

Watch the trailer below.

For years Tyrese has been at the forefront of telling Pendergrass’ story on film, even buying the rights to his life story. He told George Lopez in 2010 how the two got so close. Watch the entire video to watch an incredible tribute to the late singer.

If You Don’t Know Me airs Friday, February 8.
