Kenny G To Notorious B.I.G.: Clive Davis Doc Shows Icon's Range
Apple Music has released the first trailer for their exclusive documentary on music industry giant, Clive Davis, aptly entitled "The Soundtrack of Our Lives."
The film leans on testimonials from music greats such as Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin, Puff Daddy, L.A. Reid, Patti Smith, Alicia Keys and Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead, all offering high praise for the man who launched and shaped the careers of so many. Toward the beginning of the trailer, Franklin calls Davis "the greatest record man of all time."
Davis' close relationship with Whitney Houston is featured heavily in the trailer, a business partnership that yielded seven No. 1 singes. But a much more personal connection is evident in Davis' work. "Clive really has a weakness for artists," says Patti Smith in the trailer. "It all stems from that authentic love of music,"
An accomplished record man in his own right, GRAMMY-winner L.A. Reid, lauds Davis' range in the trailer, saying, "That range of Kenny G to Notorious B.I.G., that's a distance."
"The Soundtrack To Our Lives" originally premiered at Tribeca Film Festival back in April. On Oct. 3, the film makes its debut on Apple Music with a limited run in theaters starting Sept. 27.
