Documentary Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives is set to open the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
Based on Davis’ 2013 bestselling autobiography, the film chronicles the historic influence of “The Man with the Golden Ears,” in a compelling and riveting journey. The film examines how Davis rocketed to the top of the bare-knuckles music industry, repeatedly building major record labels (Columbia, Arista, J), at times becoming the subject of great controversy while overcoming enormous professional and personal challenges and tragedies.
On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, the Radio City Music Hall world premiere will be followed by a special concert featuring performances by Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Earth, Wind & Fire, and more.
The Tribeca Film Festival runs April 19 to April 30 in New York City.
