Ndegoccello made her musical debut in 1993 with the album “Plantation Lullabies” which incorporated elements of jazz, R&B, rock and hip-hop. The German-born Grammy nominated musician will certainly bring her creative genius to the series! 

Queen Sugar debuts as a two-night event on Tuesday, September 6 and Wednesday, September 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN. The series will regularly air Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT for the remainder of its 13-episode first season.
