Iyanla Vanzant says she felt compelled to travel to Ferguson, Missouri, after watching hours of coverage on the unrest.

“I said you know what, I have an opportunity,” Vanzant said in an interview on Tuesday. “I’m going to take that opportunity. I want to know what the people on the ground are saying. I wanted to hear the untold story. I wanted to be there as it unfolded.”

Vanzant did not make her journey alone. The spiritual guru and host of the award-winning series “Iyanla: Fix My Life” brought along a television production crew.

The anticipated “Iyanla: Fix My Life – Special Report: Healing in Ferguson” airs tonight amid a wave of social media chatter.

Breaking from the tradition of the series format, Vanzant takes to the streets of Ferguson to embed herself in the community to promote peace and healing in the wake of the Michael Brown shooting.
